Description



In the exhibited artworkcoloured LED numeric displays have been mounted in 3 square-shaped reflective panels. Several of these panels go to make up a work and are each fixed to the wall at slightly different angles so as to reflect the surrounding space and thus creating an interrelationship between time and space. Controlled by a complex algorithm, which despite its apparent randomness is in fact subject to a precise logic – the numbers 1-9 light up in a hypnotic rhythm. Inspired by Japanese cherry blossoms (sakura), the individual LEDs are arranged to resemble falling flowers on the reflecting surfaces. A poetic excursion on space and time takes shape in the interplay between the surroundings and each of the reflecting units.
