Description

“Solid Void is an architectural light installation with the space as performer. The work is a site specific investigation of an existing space in a previous industrial building. Solid Void is a basic definition of a space that distinguishes itself from its surroundings with the aid of three shades of color and light of varying strength. It happens in a slow here and now, with a simple but groundbreaking approach. It is magic to observe when what is solid and concrete becomes the void, the immaterial.” (Text by: Kirsten Dehlholm)

A light installation slowly and continuously transforming during a defined period of time as visitors were aloud to move around the space. On a vast open floor filled with pillars in an old brewery building two adjacent rooms were defined by plaster walls raised between the pillars. One open room missing a wall and one closed room with a door. The plaster walls had three varying shades of yellow. On the exterior exterior walls a saturated yellow, on the interior walls of the open room a slightly lighter yellow and on the interior walls of the closed room an almost white yellow. Each wall had a halogen working light directed towards it, one the interior surface and on the exterior surface.

Solid Void dealt with the relativity of binary notions such as interior/exterior, light/color, solid/void as well as perceiver and perceived. As the visitors moved around, from exterior to interior, the walls and their surroundings were slowly transforming, appearing and vanishing, moving together with its perceivers as if also perceiving them.
