Moving light geometries describe and create spatiality based on the present architecture. In the course of the display the video detaches itself to the point of expressive structures - the display stops forming volumes and begins to add gestures and signs, until finally the whole “light” scene falls into pieces - the high rise façade remains and tells noting but about itself ...
Light is reinterpreted from a form providing structural element to a narrative semaphore and is twisted again culminating in the complete opposite direction: a simple illumination of the building. The installation draws a bow from space to surface, abstraction to narrative, simulation to reference - in the search of different qualities of light.
