Abstract

This article investigates the curation and presentation of screen-based works that involve the use of light and darkness. Focusing on two works, Rafael Lozano-Hemmer's "Under Scan" (London, 2008) and Gregory J. Markopoulos' "Eniaios" (Lyssaraia, 2012), it exposes the complexities that arise in the space/sensation relationship when there is an interchange of light and darkness. Moreover, it explores the ways in which screen-based works can function as ephemeral architecture and as communication vehicles between the physical environment and living agents. I will present Lozano-Hemmer's practice in dialogue with Markopoulos' screenings, in an attempt to define the curated event - as an experience and as a process- based on notions of immersion and the sensorial apprehension of space .
