Still of Trance
Neon, luminescent wire, birefringent film
28 x 10 x 4 in., 2002)
Stephanie Andrews has used a variety of high-tech materials to create Trance: neon tubing driven by a special transformer to give a beading effect; luminescent wire; and a special film that reflects different colors as the viewer moves. The piece's mounting at head height invites one to contemplate the complexity of its inner spaces.
