Light Phenomena, 2022

Unna, Germany

A series of processes influenced by light materialise inside a large, glass cube. These processes are essential for life on earth, and range in scale from cosmic to microscopic. By magnifying, speeding up or slowing down these 3D-animated processes, the power of light, which is not always directly perceivable but permanently present, is revealed. Inside the cube, these 3D animations can actually be seen in three dimensions. The cube measures 2.30 x 2.30 x 2.30 metres and the interior is built up of 1600 LED modules, consisting of 36 LEDs each, which adds up to a total of 57.600 LEDs.

The work was commissioned by the Centre for International Light Art, which holds a remarkable collection with works by James Turell and Olafur Eliasson, among others.
