Interactive installation in the exhibition „If I were you”
St. Gertrud, Cologne

Discarded illuminated letters placed on steel tubes at head height begin to light up and slowly rotate almost imperceptibly when a visitor approaches the installation.
As soon as the viewer moves away, the letters slow down, stop and their light slowly goes out.

10 illuminated letters
[Aluminium sheet, akrylic glass blue and white]
lit from both sides
10 steal tubes
10 tansformers
10 motors
10 cirquit boards
20 sensors
