SKYLIGHT is a large animated GIF, vastly exceeding the size of common screens (7680 x 2160 pixels), inviting viewers to scroll within their web browser to reveal the animation. SKYLIGHT depicts an architecture seen through isometric perspective, rendered using pixel patterns, digital moiré, and a monochromatic palette. The architecture in SKYLIGHT is based on an existing artist-run space from Vancouver, Canada, also titled Skylight. Between 2014 and 2016, Skylight hosted numerous art exhibitions, electronic music, and live performance events before shutting down in 2016. The animation SKYLIGHT portrays the venue being set up for an event coproduced by the artist in August 2016.
