Vortex Lucis


Vortex Lucis is an interactive installation and speculative simulation of phenomena of light and sound within the realm of black holes.

Black holes do not only attract matter — light, likewise, cannot escape its immense gravitation. Based on the notion that visitors of the installation represent sources of light and sound which are being attracted by the vortex in the centre, the installation explores aesthetic and atmospheric renditions of this phenomenon. The spectators thus become part of the speculative universe and form visual and acoustic events based on their presence in the given space — as an audiovisual simulation of a gravitational field.
