Continuing our research on the relation between light and time, we have imagined System, a kinetic installation inspired by the celestial mechanics that has shaped our relationship with time.

Gradually and cyclically, the object shifts its light intensity. This aerial ride from shadow to light, night to day, settles a time scale devoted to contemplation.

Multiplied in a space, these objects operate as a proper system describing a stellar round dance. Like a choreography, their revolution and light synchronize or desynchronize, drawing a route where volumes of light are moved.

Through its kinetic dimension, System reveals the beauty and the potential for transformation of light experienced in spaces. Indeed, the aim is to reveal as much as possible the beauty of the effect where the object almost fades away as it is minimal. For us, the beauty of the object lies in the magical synchronisation and convergence of movement and light. This concept sums up our approach : the movement becomes the switch, the light dimmer.
