We still do not know what exactly light is. It appears immaterial to the human eye, yet it renders our world visible. Blink! features four graduate student projects that investigate light's highly ambiguous nature in different fields: fine art, design, architecture, gaming, performance and popular culture. Rather than looking at the use of light in each of the above-mentioned areas separately, the participating students employed a mix of practices across different disciplines toward the use of light as "inter-medium". Common to all of the works involved in the exhibition is the aspect of interactivity that allows the artworks to respond to the presence of visitors. This in return asks for responses from the visitors establishing a constantly changing dialog between artwork and audience.
