LYON LIGHT FESTIVAL 2016 | 08 > 10 December 2016
After GRID, the revelation of the 2013 Fête des Lumières, TETRO+A and WHITEvoid this year present Deep Web, a monumental and immersive installation by Berlin-based artist Christopher Bauder from WhiteVoid and musical composer Robert Henke. Deep Web is the world’s first monumental kinetic art installation that uses lasers. It uses the architecture of the Hôtel de Région’s atrium, designed by Christian de Portzamparc, immersing the spectator in a futurist kinetic light ballet. Deep Web is the result of years of research and experiments conducted by two passionate artists with a single vision – alongside innovative companies working with sound and light. Deep Web is a 25 metre-long interactive and architectural light structure composed of 175 motorised spheres filled with liquid that absorbs light generated by twelve powerful lasers. Each sphere creates beams of infinite light to produce vector planes that can be modified in a three-dimensional space. The interplay of reflections creates coloured geometric figures that react to Robert Henke’s electronic compositions.
DEEP WEB is produced by TETRO+A, the TETRO agency’s cultural production hub and WHITEvoid.
