The "Light Room" creates its cosmic light shows through geometric objects and walls with perforated surfaces, behind which are electronically operated motors.
The walk-in space contains a large black cube that appears to balance on one of its edges, two small white cubes, a white cylinder, and a large red sphere. The objects move themselves or are played upon by moving beams of light. With the help of darkness, light and movement, a poetic choreography develops that creates a kind of moving starry sky and lets the visitors temporarily become part of this atmospheric environment. In this way, the "Light Room" invites visitors to pause and dream.
