Description

A permanent light installation consisting of two circular forms, placed opposite from each other on each end of the bridge "De Tre Broer" in Århus, Denmark. Through their positions and alignment, optical and illuminating qualities, in relationship to their context they emphasize and activate the surrounding landscape through generating focused experiences. Each form is identical but inverted, like two poles with a positive-negative relationship. The installation simultaneously exposes existing qualities and generates new conditions. It activates rather than occupies space. Double Focus operates through its relation to the landscape and its perceiver. A work which celebrates the past, present and future journeys of the location of De Tre Broer.

Double Focus generates a situation that challenges passersby by simultaneously focusing and blurring their visual perception. Encountering the work engages the everyday passerby in reflection upon the journey through the landscape, but also the journey of the landscape itself. No longer a passive stretch one passes by, it becomes an active companion. As you move, the landscape moves with you.
