I see Dawe's installations as an intense study of colour. He transforms string it into coloured light pulses and vibrating energy. I can imagine the experience of walking around his work and seeing moire effects and transforming colours as the visual friction of the coloured threads overlap.
Visit his website here to see more of his beautiful work . I've got my fingers crossed that he one day shows in Melbourne.
