Godley’s work takes an approach driven by the exploration of qualities that emerge as light is reflected and diffused, interacts with materials, and as viewers experience a dialogue with these effects.
This process is grounded in making, driven by the tactile quality enjoyed through manipulation of materials. Her sensibilities result in delicate adjustment of materials in response to light as it travels through or is reflected off of surfaces. This work is animated via programmable LEDs, not computer programs. This grounding is further enriched through research into the psychological and physiological effects that imagery, light and color have on viewers.
The work provokes questions regarding how the merger of light and materials may be used to mesmerize, excite, or calm.
