the danish yoke agency creates a physical object of 196 light beams

as a fusion between the danish words ‘construction’ and ‘structure’, ‘konstruktur’ challenges the human perception of space. placed directly on the floor, the installation appears as a minimalist sculpture without a pedestal. the rhythmic movements of the light beams thus create a volatile architecture that for a while changes the space.

by adding smoke, yoke made the light beams visible to the human eye. this transforms an otherwise intangible form into a physical object and creates a temporary cubic form. each light beam operates individually and reacts to movement. a camera detects bodies moving in front of the installation, which creates a temporary dialogue between the light architecture and the visitors.

despite its simplistic form language, konstruktur is a result of a long craftsmanship process. carefully assembled by hand each light source consists of a LED, two lenses and a printed circuit board. together they create a grid of 196 identical light beams.

unlike the many prefabricated light sources that exist on the market today, the installation is based on a passion for light as material and craft. if you are close enough to the light sources, all the small parts of the structure are clearly visible, thus becoming part of the overall aesthetic of the installation.

konstruktur was created as a flexible construction that can take on different shapes depending on the specific location and was first exhibited at kuben in horsens, denmark, in october – november 2017. from february 9th 2018 until march 18th 2018 konstruktur can be experienced again at horsens art museum, denmark.
