Elisa Artesero specialises in light art and uses installation, photography, glass and film to capture lights essence. She recently graduated with a First Class Honours BA in Interactive Arts from Manchester School of Art. Elisa has exhibited in the UK and Paris and was recently commissioned by Manchester School of Art to create a ‘Sun Scroll’, a Zen poem revealed by sunlight on the School’s new roof terrace. She is keen to collaborate with engineers and architects to continue to create work for architectural spaces.
Elisa’s work addresses themes of transience, and the nature of happiness and hope. The title of the piece on display, Leap and the Net Will Appear, is a Zen saying appropriated into a piece of text art activated by light. You can work out the light’s path but can’t see it all, requiring you to trust in the leap to the net, like a leap of faith.
