Using Dan Flavin’s Marfa Project – a hallway blockaded by illuminated bars – as a departure point, Ivan Navarro’s Red Holeway re-interprets the optical illusion of perceiving depth of space through light. Condensed for a contemporary age, Red Holeway appears as an elongated corridor flanked by lights, although it is only 4.25 inches thick. Mounted on an aluminium door, Navarro’s holographic effect is achieved through elementary materials: glass, mirror, and light bulbs, creating believable mirage with stringent economy.
