A mediation on the perception of light and colour, Miles Stemp’s I want to help you. is composed of a series of seven individually coloured lightboxes. The installation engages visitors in a process of heliotherapy – a therapeutic treatment involving exposure to full-spectrum light that mimics the effects of daylight, often prescribed to those suffering from seasonal affective disorder. Each of Stemp’s lightboxes, filtered according to RGB and CMYK colour models, are outfitted as a light therapy box. Manipulating modes of processing in both human and mechanical beings, I want to help you. offers a space for reflection and absorption.
