‘Light High’ by Jacqueline Hen - International Light Art Award 2019

The 3rd International Light Art Award 2019, goes to Jacqueline Hen.

With her installation “Light High” she explores the human perception of time, space and possibly, the feeling of falling to other dimensions, that are unlike our 3D world.

Light, space are in an inseparable but invisible connection (theory of relativity). They presuppose a seemingly stable framework of orientation in everyday life, in which there is no reason to question the relationships between subject and object, cause and effect, beginning and end.

A mirrored ceiling together with a thin reflecting surface of water on the ground and a grid arrangement of lights are creating the spatial illusion of an infinite vertical space of light and darkness. By traversing a small bridge, the visitor can cautiously discover the immersing endlessness beneath his/her feats and above his/her head.

The installation is enhanced with the acoustic dimension of the Shepard sound. The Shepard scale is an acoustic illusion of a seemingly infinite rising or falling scale. To hear and experience “Light High” click on the video bellow:

Hiroto Yoshizoe's Moon Reflection

Inspired with the relationship between the moon and the sun, Yoshizoe's mobile called 1.625m/s2 reflects the light of one simple bulb via mirror.

The moon is the most well-known indirect lighting known to humanity.
It receives light from the sun and gently shines above us, and is strongly associated with our feelings from ancient
times.

It consists of a series of suspended mirrors that reflect light to illuminate the surrounding space. If placed near window, it can also reflect light directly from the sun.

The mobile is called 1.625m/s2, which is the downwards acceleration caused by the moon's gravity on a falling body.

Just like the moon, this lighting equipment receives light from external environments and appears to shine gently to our eyes. The objects shine as they float within the air, as if they are free from gravity.
