Laser art exhibition in Wolverhampton

By Liam Keen | Wolverhampton | Attractions | Published:

A local artist has taken an exhibition into the future by using lasers to create his pieces.

Graham Everitt runs architecture surveying company Electronic Architecture Limited, where he scans buildings to create 3D models for clients across the world, from the Black Country to Dubai.

Now, he has taken his skills from his day job and created art pieces, bringing the Black Country its first laser art exhibition, titled 'Gap In The Mind'.

The artwork is on show at The Asylum Art Gallery, on Chapel Ash, Wolverhampton, and first opened on February 8.

On February 15 at 6pm the exhibition will be open again to the public, where people can 'peer through the eye of a laser and see a different side of Nature and to being human'.

The 50-year-old from Wolverhampton uses a laser scanner to create the pieces, where laser beams bounce off surfaces and create coordinates which then builds up the final piece.

"It can operate in the dark without artificial light and creates the images from the infrared beams.

"I got very intrigued by it, my background was originally in art, and that was what the exhibition was all about.

"It was important to be to have the exhibition in my home town of Wolverhampton.

"We're potentially looking at doing this kind of art at the school of art at Wolverhampton University, but we're just in discussions at the moment.

"I find it a lot of fun, it can be interpreted differently by people, you don't quite know what to expect or what you will encounter, so hopefully it won't be my last expedition like this.

"The purpose was to look at the type of artwork that is possibly with the technology, that was the idea.

"At The Asylum we want to use the technology more and even prject the artwork onto buildings, it could even be possible to project 3D images onto derelict buildings such as the old eye infirmary."
