Exhibitions: Maison and Objet 2018 ABN AMRO Circl Light Studies

The Circle explores looping repetition and it’s hypnotic lure. With this piece Jonas Vorwerk looks at the possibility of creating a dynamically changing light, which attracts and locks the viewers’ attention. The Circle renders a seemingly unvaried process of calm yet always changing cycles that play around with our perception by algorithmically balancing between repetition and randomness.

Tonal changes of day-and-night cycles combined with irregularly animated light strings make the work seem vital and having a life of its own. In fact the gentle bursts of light roaming the ring have a generated life span in which they move through the circular path. When their time is up, new ones appear and disappear in an endless iterance. These apparently repeating occurrences are in fact distinct and interact with one another influencing each other’s duration, speed, brightness and/or direction. Vorwerk’s works are often centered around the user playing with and alerting the work, this time it seems that he has let the work play with the viewers by captivating their attention with a series of orbiting transient flows.
