On & Off | Prende y Apaga

The Glue Factory, Glasgow (2016)

Immersive installation: 24 spotlights, Arduino Mega, mechanical relays, electrical cable, plastic box, cinefoil, braided wire, blackout curtains, black paint, mdf. Dimensions variable

Pitch-black room with a suspended light-rig in the middle. At one time, a spotlight may shine on an audience member or simply onto the floor or a wall. Spotlights turn on and off for individual, random time segments (between 2 – 35 seconds) and with random intervals in between (3 – 50 seconds). Intervals and timings do not follow any predetermined sequence.

Running on a randomized algorithmic spiral, the installation piece functioned as a foil to the text piece Spiral Love.
