Nikola Dicke has developed a unique technique of drawing with light for which she uses a soot-blackened glass on a special 7000 lumen overhead-projector. Dicke seemingly draws directly on the site, the wall, hill, tree, surface on which the drawing is projected, using the surface as her canvas. In this real-time process the viewer doesn’t only perceive an artwork but, by interacting with Dicke while draws, is part of its creation. Dicke’s light-drawing is performance, painting, sculpture all in one work.
