Title: Steam Beams

Date: 1979

Edition: Installation

Materials: 35mm photographic slides, slide projectors, projected light, steam

Size: Structure 1 x 1 x 1 M

Notes: Light from two projectors is intercepted by a column of steam which acts as a three-dimensional 'screen' to display (and construct) the 'physical' object/image.
Observers can interact with the piece by walking past it (or through it) so that their air currents cause the steam to move with a resulting change in the location of the lines of light.


Andrew Pepper works with projected light, holography and installation.  Based in the UK,  he has exhibited his work in group and solo exhibitions internationally and, as a senior lecturer in fine art at Nottingham Trent University, he taught on the BA (Hons) fine art course, the Master of Fine Art course and has acted as a PhD examiner for a wide range of key project-based research submissions.
