I am mainly concerned with new ways of conceptualizing the moving image and exploring conventions of seeing.

Projections become particles of light and moving shadows; screens deconstruct and crystallize; and motion is suspended into still elements.

P. Wickramasinghe, 2015

Pavitra Wickramasinghe is a multidisciplinary artist mainly concerned with new ways of conceptualizing the moving image and conventions of seeing. Her current work is an exploration of notions of traveling, fluidity of place and memory. She uses light and shadows as extensions of the projected image to create installations where the viewer occupies filmic space instead of being physically removed from the work.
