Alkesh Parmar

MA work

In addition to presenting light as a form of de-materialised matter, I am engaged in thinking about processes of re-materialisation; materials being transformed from one sphere to another, specifically materials that are normally destined to become waste products.


Both de-materialisation and re-materialisation are linked for me, because they are aspects of energy systems. My thinking about light is from standpoint of its physical manifestation in connection to the etheric substrate of human beings, the etheric and subtle as an emitter of light, or being a light-sensitive medium.
