Jon Raine’s Fine Art practice centres on perception and light;
light is used as a methodology for provoking a reassessment of how we see and perceive reality.
As a commercial creative and image maker using photography, he has always been fascinated by creating concepts that make new meanings and images which reveal our reality, by originating ideas and capturing light.
His virtual and 3D-printed sculptures are computer-generated but use scans and photos captured from reality. Cameras and software capture light, control it, shape it, to make physical and virtual forms.
Is it an actual thing in reality or a CG image in virtual reality?
The virtual version is not real but can function.
A 3D-printed version exists but is not real and doesn’t always function.
They are all simulations.
They all convey the concept.
Which do you accept?
