When at the beach, we are fascinated by plastic, garbage, and rope that light up the beach as colored dots scattered between stones and shells. Beachgoers’ discarded bottles, plastic spoons, pens, shoe soles, plastic lids and fishing nets, partially buried in sand. Sun, salt and sand fight to assimilate this waste into the natural landscape, but the decay is slow.
This has inspired us to create "Beach DK", a series of plaster medallions cast directly on the beach, as a kind of snapshot – a three-dimensional Polaroid – examining traces of humans and animals in the sand.
Lyngsø-Light’s collaborative practice is philosophical exploring what it means to be human at this particular place and time. We strive to create drama in minimalism, stripping our aesthetic to the point of abstraction to create space in which doubt and uncertainty play a leading role in the viewing experience.
