The objects are abstract sails, as a “light-space-installation”. The objects are orientated to the lake. The lake Millstättersee is getting a tribune out of water, because the energy of the lake is trapped, converted and reflected as light. So the sails are working as a transmitter and receiver at the same time.

The illumination is reacting to the surrounding – the more people approaching the sails the more vibrate light. The illumination is also reacting to the temperature – they are constantly changing the colour. The colder the temperature the warmer the colour if light is getting.

In association with Karl Sodek.
