VIRTUAL HOLE - SUN 1:1
2011|Custom-made hardware, custom-made software, light.
Virtual Hole - Sun 1:1 is a spatial intervention embodying the transition of the light from the immediate surrounding into the exhibition space. Every time sun shines on the light sensor on the roof, its global irradiance, correlated color temperature and diffusion are being sensed, analyzed and synthesized inside the gallery - the sun is shining inside.
Undoing architecture - weather inside
The installation Virtual Hole - Sun 1:1 is a part of a series of installations, entitled Virtual Holes and Virtual Mirrors. The series investigates the relationship between weather conditions and the built architecture in urban environment. By letting the outside weather phenomena indoors, or by mirroring them inside, Virtual Holes and Virtual Mirrors annihilate the protective function of architecture. They are undoing architecture in order to heighten our sensibility of the immediate surrounding, transforming the ephemeral and evanescent weather phenomena outside into significant and poetic events inside.
