Light Installation

Aeon-Crop-Retouch-IG

We live in a time that feels like it has no end, a cycle that seems to continue forever. Lives stuck in an endless loading screen, progressing yet remaining stationary

Aeon (latin) originally meant 'life' or 'being', but evolved to be defined as 'forever' and 'eternity', a development that echoes our current status as spirits trapped in stasis

This piece is a statement on our forever looping existence. Now is never the end, nor the beginning. It is just now. Now in a day, now in a year, now in an Aeon

The installation

The installation was built with custommade light profiles using addressable LEDs and generative programmed animations. The animation concept was inspired by the cyclic feeling of waiting, displaying infinite looping paths without a defined end or beginning

Animations were made in TouchDesigner and ran for two weeks on a custom-built microcomputer
