Civil Twilight – Choreography for 450 nm and 600 nm

Light-video installation, 14 min loop, HD, colour,  LED lamp, screens, mirror floor, 5,50 x 2,50 m, 2022

by Andrea Božić and Julia Willms

The video-light installation Civil Twilight - Choreography for 450 nm and 600 nm works with the palette of the night sky colours, a deep indigo-violet-blue and deep orange-red ranges, the shortest and longest wavelengths visible to human eye.

It features a cube-like shape in constant movement that plays with the perception of colour and shape. It combines infrathin layers of colour light projected across several surfaces, creating a perceptual continuum between a 2D video image and 3D projection screens, the shape constantly affected by a flux of merging colour fields.

The installation was first presented within the Looking Glass-House project at the KunstFestSpiele Herrenhausen in Hanover (DE).
