Light Leaks

Collaboration with Kyle McDonald - to present

A scattered array of fifty mirror balls reflect light from three projectors, filling a room with small reflections, and casting patterns that fill the visitor’s peripheral vision. This creates a curious space that alternates between a meditative state, and an uneasy imbalance. It’s an experiment in combining a found object with computer vision to create a profound and unusual experience. This installation was created in collaboration with Kyle McDonald originally for Click Festival 2013

This installation has over the years been improved and shown at various places:

  • Click Festival (Denmark, 2013)
