Gabey Tjon A Tham
Gabey Tjon A Tham, Netherlands, (1988). Is an installation artist working with an extensive variety of media and art forms.
During her years in Fine Arts her work developed from the two-dimensional surface to more interdisciplinary attitudes and site-specific/spatial installations in which she discovered a particular interest for the medium Sound and Installation as distinct phenomena.
Her work consists of re-contextualized excerpts from reality that gain their form within a space of architecture in which the perceiver is reverted to the process of reflection on it’s own thoughts and associations.

Is a generative environment, based on a subjective interpretation of our experience and the behavior of sound traveling through space.
Inspired by the movement of the wind through the trees she makes this tangible by creating a field of rotating lighting wires. Their ever evolving motion, shape and sound are continuously changing an environment that envelopes the perceiver, constructing its surrounding and imaginary space.
