In a dark room, there is an undulating line of light precariously floating in the air. If one walks throughout the room, this light wave oscillates; its amplitudes change in correlation to the movement of one’s mind and body, as if the light transcribes these movements into imagery.
A large wooden ring is placed on the floor. Another, identical one is suspended from the ceiling above it, at the three-meters height. The rings are connected by monofilament lines, which are stretched in different directions, thus forming irregular cylinder. The LED light is positioned in the middle of the cylinder, projecting light onto it. Depending on the angle of viewing, the line changes position, curvature and size.
