David Ogle is a sculptor and installation artist who explores light and shapes in fleeting three dimensional form. For many of his installations, he uses fluorescent fishing line illuminated with ultraviolet rays to convey linear movement throughout a room or across a surface. Just as a light may bounce off of a wall and reflect at an angle, Ogle produces that natural motion with controllable and consistent materials, and the results are these visually vibrant, glowing blue structures that generate geometric shapes within a physical space.
Ogle says, “Much of my work to date has dealt with exploring notions of materiality, of permanence, and of the perception of objects in space. Using light as a sculptural medium, my work is innately ephemeral. It begins as a set of strict mathematical procedures that are played out within an environment. The space simultaneously shapes the work and becomes manipulated by it.”
