Working across varying forms of technology and new media, James Clar investigates perceptions of society and cultural identity. For Freefall v9, Clar uses coloured light filters to conjure the form of a rising figure across the wall. Borrowing from the visual language of animation and comic books, he has used radiant lines of LED light to emphasise the sense of speed and motion of the figure, perhaps in an emergent or transformational moment.
