White Light/White Heat

Rainer Kohlberger & Wilm Thoben 2011

Guided by two reflectors, a white laser beam oscillates on a black backdrop. Issuing from an apparent point at rest, the bundle of light quickly begins to plot geometric forms and waves – resulting from a speed reduction and therefore an enhanced flickering of the laser. Accompanied by computer-generated sounds, we are treated to a high-grade reductionist play of movements, on the edge of human perception. (Diagonale)
