In the Neon Light Cage, Gketsis has created a transformative space and one of his ‘influential environments’. Gketsis works are often reminiscent of laboratory experiments : pushing artistic experimentation to an extra-sensory level. Shifting patterns of white neon light circle. The viewer stands centre stage or circumnavigates the outside. The colour white soon becomes questionable and colour invades. The work tests the limits and connections between body, brain and eye; challenging our ability to perceive and react in a profoundly disruptive environment.
Dimitris Gketsis creates situations in which altered perceptions questioned the certainty of the order of things. “Neon Light Cage” was intended “to produce a very peculiar state of the mind, something near a loss of orientation, a kind of perplexity of not knowing what to do, a reduced ability to maneuver, while at the same time experiencing joyful, happy, self-sufficient, purified, introspective feelings,”
