light has always fascinated scientists, philosophers, religious thinkers and artists. how does it affect our emotions and sensations? ‘licht, mehr licht!’ or ‘light, more light!’ are the last words spoken by goethe, a novelist who was also fascinated by the optical sciences. this mysterious incident is reminiscent of near death experiences — tunnels of light, also known as tunnels of death. guillaume marmin drew inspiration from this theme to create an immersive installation that explores the links between light, sound and space.

the minimalist work created by french visual artist guillaume marmin ‘licht, mehr licht!’ is an immersive installation that explores the links between light, sound and space. the artist’s aim is to explore the effects of light on our sensations. this project has been an opportunity to renew ties with the composer philippe gordiani, who has worked on timée at stereolux, and the pianist eve risser to create a hypnotic and captivating universe where chaos and harmony struggle for mastery.
