Since 2009 Jason Sims has been producing an evolving series of light boxes that reflect space upon itself, creating the illusion of a seemingly infinite void. The initial illusion in his work prompts the viewer to wrestle with what they eyes perceive and what the mind knows, with Sims trying to evoke a desire within the viewer where the illusion conquers, at least for a moment or two, what is known to be true. This is done to reach towards something more powerful and more profound – to create without complete disorientation something magical, indefinable and unexplainable.
