Constellation of light-circles, segments, and arcs by Henk Stallinga
These site-specific installations consist of special LED tubes filled with warm light. A light constellation is made up of several linear fragments and hoop-like shapes of light which vary in diameter. The lights are arranged in juxtaposing positions, some vertical, and some horizontal. When viewed from different angles in the space, the installation generates distortions, reversals, and various light drawings. It sometimes divides or cuts through the space itself and, in doing so, the installation draws attention to acts of composing, constructing, and framing.
Note: the two light circles pictured have the exact same diameter (3m)
