Julia Redding’s Impalpable explores ideas of documentation and tangibility and their relevance in modern digitized contemporary culture.

In attempting to change an impalpable medium into a tangible form, Redding presents the viewer with abstracted images, which appear as a portal into an illusory environment. After documenting a projected light painting, Redding appropriates the photographs and reconstructs the imagery to create an illusion of physical mass. The work therefore creates a demand for the physical experience of an artwork by making it difficult to faithfully document.
