“Blinker II“. A Light Show Theatre

2007-2010

Nature is in charge here: „Blinker II“ is a light-kinetic sculpture which consists of a 1000 by 1183.5 cm steel structure with 196 movable mirrors made of polished stainless steel, each measuring 50 by 83 cm. The individual panels as well as the total area of the lamella wall with a size of 719.5 by 1183.5 cm have the proportions of a standard cinema screen. On them, the elements of nature, light and air, the sun and the wind, heaven and earth, give a waving and blinking performance in an atmospheric spectacle of nature of dazzling array (similar to the Cuxhaven tidal object „Blinker I“ created in 1982 which consists of mobile mirrors swimming in the water).
