Ann Veronica Janssens uses devices such as light, artificial fog, colour projections, mirrors, reflective materials and sound in order to push human perception to its limits. She describes the space-time experiences at the heart of her work as being close to altered states of consciousness. Janssens made her first indoor haze installations in the late 1990s, constructing enclosed spaces filled with vapour coloured by light. More recently, wall-mounted works such as Rose (2007) have combined artificial fog with beams of light. The haze makes the intersecting beams visible, revealing a luminous star in which light appears to solidify.
