This installation consists of two structures. The first one evokes a “lighthouse”. A rotating beamer projects a computer-generated sea of liquid metal, giving the viewer the impression of being surrounded by it. The second structure includes an LED moving head. This machine executes a site-specific light choreography, which interacts with the architectural features of the exhibition space, a former industrial oven. Together, these light sources create an abstract narrative and a composite projection, which engulfs the exhibition space completely. The industrial processes of cooling and fusion that inhabited it, as well as the novel “Solaris” by Stanislaw Lem, inspired this work.

This installation has been presented at the OnOff space in Winterthur, CH and the show was curated by Boris Magrini.
