Description

The light installation Temperature Field activates the park Grønningen in Ørestad, Copenhagen, as well as invites its inhabitants to activate it, and investigates the influences of color temperature and rhythm of light in public spaces.

Temperature Field consists of 8 masts placed in a composition. Each mast holds two lamps, each focused in opposite directions. Two cones of light are projected from each onto the grass covered ground. The light is programmed to change continually according to two of the most basic qualities of light, changing color temperature and rhythm.

As the sun sets the light pulsates, in a smooth gradual rhythm, rather fast and as it approaches the end of day the light pulsates gradually slower throughout the night until sunrise. It is a constantly pulsating field of light cones, of ever-changing color temperatures.

Temperature Field will is a work to experience both from ground level as one moves about in the shifting light environment and from the surrounding apartment buildings.
