Fabrice Höfgen’s ‘Immateriality’ is an interactive light installation where a series of lights communicate with each other, with light, in a manner reminiscent of human conversation.
The installation consists of seven identical pendant lamps. The changing intensity of the light, by pulsation, is inspired by the changing volume of voices in a human conversation. The installation is “based on two main motives: the observation of light, light reflection and light color and the space which develops between them though their interactive relations.” says Höfgen.
“The moving light-reflections on the ground create the effect of a distorted water surface. As in a kaleidoscope moving colors are reflected, creating a shape which is then destroyed by another evolving reflection. Creating new spaces, immaterial worlds. The lamps communicate with each other, creating the sense of personality and aura. The immateriality of light becomes visible.”
