Light object
Commissioned by the friends´ association of the Städtische Galerie Offenburg

80 x 240cm (tableau), 18cm (light stick)
Tableau (MDF), UV printing, epoxy resin, light bar composed of 32 white super-bright LEDs, circuit board, eprom, power supply converter

A vertical tableau with an integrated light stick (white LEDs) is sited in the Municipal Gallery of Offenburg.

The vertical format dynamises the chosen wall segment and is reminiscent of advertising columns and banners – media used to proclaim information and opinions at the dawn of the industrial age. Additionally, the UV printed image surface is coated with red-transparent epoxy resin.

The letters and words generated by the light stick refer to the topics of utopia and ideals against the backdrop of the principles of the Baden Revolution of 1848–49.

The work was commissioned by the Gallery´s friends´ association (Förderverein Archiv, Museum und Galerie) and presented as an endowment to the Municipal Gallery.
