Excessive Lighting presents a body of new work in collaboration with Melissa McGrath. The works in this exhibition grapple with the changing face of Perth City in the wake of the mining boom and in particular the aesthetic alterations the city has undergone in its pursuit to regain the mantle of the "City of Light". Each work interrogates the use of specific lighting practices in these urban environments and subtly pokes fun at the absurdity of this ever increasing and all-encompassing trend.
