Supercharge Momentum: An Art Installation

by Florian Gassmann and Andreas Muxel.

The installation „Supercharge Momentum“ is composed of varying surfaces which are oriented in the three dimensional space. The basic logic of the structure consists of replicas of the defining spatial elements.

Through integrated controllable light the different spatial patterns get illuminated indirectly. The time interval of the transmitted light pulses cause a constant reinterpretation of the spatial moments by the observer. Sound patterns which are sent synchronously into the structure alter the logic of the different patterns of light rushing to open and close the temporary window of perception.

I’ve been coming across a lot of installations like this recently — works in which smaller pieces of a larger space are individually defined in some way (usually with light or sound). Each smaller space exists on it’s own, and they are then combined in some sequence to form a whole. Even when things are moving as fast as this is, you get a sense of spatial superposition — summing the individual nodes to characterize the entire system.
