“Cycles” is an audiovisual installation in which the spectator is immersed in an abstract world of light and sound. The installation is largely inspired by the work of Thomas Wilfred who in the 1920s developed his “Lumia”, an abstract form of light use that he saw as a visual music. This input combined with modern technology laid the foundation for “Cycles”.
In the piece abstract light patterns are created by shooting laser beams through rotating transparent objects. The constantly varying geometric and organic shapes that occur have a synaesthetic relationship with the evolving and realtime sound composition. The result is an immersive space in which sound and image come together into a hypnotic experience.
