Fluorescent tubes, ballasts, cables, controlls
The installation consists of fluorescent tubes arranged in a circle, all wired via long, thin, white cables to a construction cross hanging from the ceiling. The light emission is animated and shifts slowly from low luminosity to very bright in an endless loop.
“Fluorescent light is such a restrictive medium and overtime, we developed a particular appreciation that drives us to continue to work with it. These tubes have their own poetics. The gas at the inside is set to a high vacuum state to cause a discharge phenomenon similar to the origin of the universe. May-be we sense that when we look at them” >> The Interview
