Light Matters

Out of the darkness, a moving light appears in between the trees; dancing in the middle of the sky it looks like a mirage. Images from natural phenomena are projected on a net and continuously change shape, colour and intensity.

Light has brought us comfort and wonderment since the beginning of time, but that role has been partial to artificial lighting in the decades. Rare treasures from the universe like the northern skies, the deep sea, and the centre of the earth float above us as a reminder of how much Light Matters.
