'Intersections' consists of three large, black cylinders, each with a pattern of cuts that allow rays of light to shine through. Intersecting with each other, the emitted vertical and horizontal patterns of light create a temporary three-dimensional map on the surrounding architecture.
The installation is also kinetic. A rotational platform makes the light spin while motors and weights inside the cylinders move the light sources up and down. The dynamics are slow and subtle. But as the light travels, the movement appears to increase gradually, creating a feeling of vertigo that challenges one’s sense of balance for a few seconds, before the light disappears in a new direction.
By moving lines of light and shifts in orientation, 'Intersections' creates temporary optical illusions that challenge the perception of space and comments on the intangibility of visual space.
