Hallo Darkness, my old friend
The installation at St Georgen church uses the architecture as a ship to travel into the darkness. In this era of hiper-illumination, we offer a full black space to immerse in. Our gift to the visitors is to design from the absence of light to the conveying of space. The project consists of different ways of filtering and obstructing light in order to design darkness. The church must be discovered by the visitor who chooses how to travel amongst the lights that guide the experience. The project was developed for the 20 years of Light Design in Hochschule Wismar Congres’s called Communicating Light and it was designed and installed by students from Architectural Lightin Design 2021.
