CHANDELIER | light installation | The Circle | 2020

A large-format light sculpture hangs in the center of a generous architectural body in “The Circle” at Zurich Airport. The arrangement of twelve elements creates a chandelier, the warm light of which shines through the rooms and onto the visitors. The fine, rhythmic programming of the tapes creates a poetic overall choreography of light, reflection and shadow.
