Ironbark Gallery Exhibits Light Interactions with Bernadette Smith

For immediate release

26 September 2022

Visit Strathfield Council Library and Innovation Hub this October-December to see Light Interactions by Bernadette Smith.

Bernadette’s photo media explores the materiality of light to emphasise non-human agency. She has photographed light waves interacting within a 19th Century window pane at the former Callan Park asylum at close range revealing an aurora-like display within.

These photographs record macro sunlight refractions within heritage glass; offsetting a dominant anthropocentric view of the universe.
