Product details

This piece is about two voices that each act as altering points of perception. As one changes, the light upon the other changes with it, and the arc of shadow and stretches of light combine to create new forms akin to floating sculptures.

To lapse is often considered a negative consequence; here, I wanted to present the idea as a doorway - the lapse from one state, entwined with one perception, toward another. It is in the smallest of cracks on a dark surface that we see light at its brightest.

Lapse was written to consider the nature of process and change, embracing a constant flux between two bodies to embody a sense of unity in the layers of perception that define us.
