“SOL“ is a minimalistic environment, leading visitors into the reaches of their perception. The installation builds on loss of control, shifts in awareness and a feeling of dislocation and timelessness. The all-encompassing darkness of “SOL“ is lifted in intervals by animated bursts of intensely bright light. Falling back into darkness, visitors experience abundant retinal after-images that gradually drift away until eventually, the next eruption of light is triggered.
Audiences can stay in the installation as long as they wish. There are no specifications restricting the duration of the stay. Warm clothing recommended.
