Sidereal Time, 2009

"Dave Dyment’s mirror ball installation was fantastic. I walked to Victoria Park where most of the events were happening and could see his piece at a distance. As I approached, I could discern how it was made and I thought that hanging a bunch of disco balls from a crane in front of what would become an outdoor dance floor seemed a bit obvious. I was rolling this sort of evaluation around in my head, thinking of what I might write later, but as I got under the deluge of cascading light I lost my balance and was hit with vertigo. Something about the intensity of the stage lighting bouncing off so many mirrored, reflective surfaces resulted in this complete wash or carpeting of tiny, moving discs of light. The space became wholly immersive and the ground was undulating with a gentle yet disorienting wash of pale yet intensely vibrant speckles. I went away convinced by the work’s elegance and simplicity. Dyment’s piece created an insightful instance of something purely visual riffing on the space of music and the exuberant theatricality of an outdoor concert."
