Dominique Paul's medium are photography and experimental video. The human body, its representation and transformation by light, is at the heart of her research. To counter the evanescence of the body relating to the screens she builds translucent structures surrounding the body that are lit from the inside. The body becomes visible in the dark and may have the power to shed light on its immediate surroundings. The structures are made from recycled clear plastic containers being transformed by light into what appears now to be a precious material. She participates in a re-enchantment of the world.
