Floating Signs II, 2011

Series “Mirrors of the Unseen (MotU)”

Three-part light installation
11 x 28 x 8cm each
Three painted steel casings, three light sticks, each equipped with 128 elliptical LED, three circuit boards with microprocessor, flash memory, two light sensors, power supply


Floating Signs 2 includes three vertically constructed light sticks, attached to the wall of the exhibition space. Each light stick consists of a vertical bar of white flickering LEDs. For the viewer the words and images seem to emerge from the bars, appearing as holograms in front of the architecture and the environment.

The light sticks are joined together by their content – the eighteenth-century French enlightenment theme "Liberté, Égalité, Fraternité". The motto is interwoven in diverse ways with the history of European democracies. Interpretations are assigned to each of the three concepts, which stand for an updating and a reconfiguration of the underlying democratic ideals.
