Liminality: a state of transition between one stage and the next; a threshold between two states.

Liminality is a light-box installation that explores the blur between the digital space and physical space,
creating a hyper digital installation of abstract forms, bold colour and light.
Situated in an empty commercial space on Courtenay Place, Liminality exists in a grey area between the public space and private space and explores how art can occupy the public sphere in new ways.

The installation explores multiple layers of transformation with the works acting as bridges between the digital and physical. Liminality provides the space to contemplate how these digital forms occupy the public space when given a physical presence and how the viewer perceives this occupation in relation to
themselves. Liminality also provides a place to reflect on the exponential rate at which we are adopting
the digital space into our lives.

Daniel Metcalfe is a visual artist based in Wellington, New Zealand. He has been involved in a variety of solo, collaborative and group exhibitions in public institutions, dealer galleries, artist run spaces and public spaces.
Daniel’s practice explores the relationship between the digital space and physical space, creating hyper-digital environments that engulf the viewer in abstract forms, bold colour and light. Through this he aims to provide a space for the viewer to contemplate the exponential rate at which we are incorporating the digital space into our lives. 
Daniel chooses a wide array of mediums and processes to explore this relationship. Sometimes this is explored in a calm, meditative manner and other times it takes on a more chaotic feeling. Past works of his have consisted of Vinyl on Light-boxes, Looped Digital Projection, Vinyl Drawings, Moving Image and painting.
