Interactive light installation, 2024

Light illuminates a section, a mere plane cut-out, revealing the otherwise hidden vibrations of this slice of space. It offers a glimpse into a parallel reality, inviting us to touch or even pass through it.

The installation consists of an LED light, a motion sensor, a semitransparent mirror and a mixture of generative animations projected onto a screen behind the mirror. The visitors actively shape the projected image by reaching into the illuminated section in front of the mirror. As they intersect this plane, a motion sensor detects this and generates animations based on their movement. This animation is projected back behind the mirror in a way that when it is watched from the visitor's side, it blends with the visitor's reflections and lines up perfectly with the illuminated section on their side. Thus creating a manipulatetd reflection, a sort of alternate reality that we're able to physically interact with.
