Light, as we usually interpret it, is an element without mass and gravity. For “WEIGHT OF LIGHT” a virtual physics engine simulates the kinetic forces of moving objects. This behaviour is projected on moving light pulses on a wave shaped structure in real space. “WEIGHT OF LIGHT” plays with our sense of reality by continually causing us to perceive and experience a fictional space of light. The installation emphasizes the materiality of the immaterial in an revolving reality.
“WEIGHT OF LIGHT” is selected for the INTERNATIONAL LIGHT ART AWARD and will be exhibited at the the Centre for International Light Art Unna in January 2015.
