video still


Site specific installation of coloured parachute fabrics and light boxes on a ceiling, shown together with a video projection.

The parachute fabrics are hanging from the light boxes in different ways: folded pleads, draped curves or straight and tightly fixed. The fabric radiates light and so creates different fields of colour in the space. Light, bright colours create bigger colourfields and darker colours create smaller colourfields. The fields merge into one another and the viewer can move in between, making the fabric move as well. In the same space a video shows a wavering red parachute fabric. The fabric dances in a dark snow landscape, lit up by a spotlight.
