The light installation Temperature Field activated the park Grønningen in Ørestad, Copenhagen, as well as invited its inhabitants to activate it, and investigated the influences of color temperature and rhythm of light in public spaces.
Temperature Field consisted of 8 masts placed in a composition. Each mast held two lamps, each focused in opposite directions. Two cones of light were projected from each onto the grass covered ground. The light was programmed to change continually according to two of the most basic qualities of light, changing color temperature and rhythm.
As the sun set the light pulsated, in a smooth gradual rhythm, rather fast and as it approached the end of day the light pulsated gradually slower throughout the night until sunrise. It created a constantly pulsating field of light cones, of ever-changing color temperatures.
Temperature Field will was a work to experience both from ground level as one moved about in the shifting light environment and from the surrounding apartment buildings.
