about this work
An array of light bulbs connected to an electric source produces a configuration of illuminated text. The bulbs light up to spell 'Revoltage' - a word constructed from REVOLT and VOLTAGE - emblazoned across shadows as an electric graffito. A brief, bright slogan. Illumination. The repetition of voltage. A possible measure of resistance and amplitude learnt from a light bulb factory that conjures up the everyday.
