Light Plane Depth 2.0 gives spectators a whole new sense of space and colours. Once standing in front of it, a luminous red square “in” or “on” a wall is visible. But as soon as the first subtle changes of the illumination occur, four squares in diminishing size become visible – but it is hardly observable in how they are spatially arranged. With the light choreography proceeding the squares are lit in different colours in different intensities leading to different impressions of the real depth inside the installation. After-images and other subtle effects intensify this ambiguity. Light Plane Depth 2.0 questions the apodictic certainty of one’s visual perception and refers to different philosophical notions of space.
This piece is the second iteration of an ongoing series of explorations of space, perception and color.
