50 Light Fixtures from Home Depot by Christian Giroux and Daniel Young is an installation that continues the practice of the artist‘s conceptual study of consumer culture and architectural space. They concentrate on the empty semblance of commercial lighting arrangements that in their exclusivity allow the structural logic of objects and spaces to reappear while referring to the cinematic use of light. The installation is an investigation of the production of space through the study of light fixtures and the quality of light they produce. The mass produced light fixtures which are filmed sequentially turning on and off in a bare room represent a broad sample of the available stock from a major North American chain store.
