ArtLight'' - quarterly magazine for art and light


Charlotte Dachroth und Ole Jeschonnek

In their installations, Charlotte Dachroth and Ole Jeschonnek use a completely new way of making light visible. They create three-dimensional bodies of light, called ‘Lichtvolumen’, that float in space and undermine our everyday perception of light: the light does not expand into space but is concentrated to one spot; it does not need external influences to find its form but shapes itself from within. → Read more

The Future of Light Art

Light is a messenger from the universe

Everything we know, we know through light – that is the claim by astrophysics at least. One thing is clear: From quantum optics (»The Angular Momentum of Light«) to chronobiology, from nano-optics to photonics, a new front of scientific research is developing about the nature of light. These options, which offer us new theories and practices of light, from biophysical chemistry to the lithosphere, also have effects on artistic possibilities. → Read more

Pretty on Pink | Éminences Grises in Jewellery

Pink Light

The exhibition lives from confrontation. It focuses the colour grey in jewellery, which shows distinguished restraint and cool brilliance. This means renouncing the warm shine of gold. Gold stands for the light of the sun, the divine and wealth – silver for the cool light of the moon. Grey, a classy understatement, is in this exhibition contrasted with pink – a strong, intense pink, changing between purple, magenta or fuchsia. → Read more

Data carpet ./. baroque tapestry | Detlef Schweiger

Information floot in the Light

In front of the mural “The triumphal entry of Alexander in Babylon”, made in the famous Brussels factory by Marcus de Vos 1688, lies a floor-filling light installation on the floor. It consists of around 8,000 used compact discs that reflect the light. Millions of data are burned in, but unreadable to the eye. For the most part, CDs are made of polycarbonate and are covered with a very thin layer of aluminum vapor deposited in a vacuum. → Read more
