Gradual Exposure (For Søndermarken) consisted of 7 light masts forming a circle with a diameter of 10 meters. Each mast held 2 lamps, one directed inwards and one outwards. The work was placed on a dark open grass field clearly defined by surrounding trees and bushes.
A work which was in continual transformation, slowly pulsating, gradually exposing the inner circle and its outer surroundings. Experiencing the work was radically different depending on ones position and distance in relation to it, if one is on its inside or outside. The inner experience was one of being blinded and disoriented, the outer experience one of seeing clearly and being oriented.
Gradual Exposure simultaneously and subtly exposed the gradual transformation of its context, while gradually transforming itself. It explored fundamental experiences related to light such as temporal and spatial orientation.
