Physics plays an important role in the work of artists Paul Vendel and Sandra de Wolf, often in the form of wild-growing, futuristic structures. The influence of science fiction can also be seen in their installation Whole Hole. This work is made up of hundreds of led strips, which are commonly used as Christmas decorations, as their flashing light resembles melting ice, or shooting stars.
Those who enter Whole Hole are pulled into some sort of wormhole where movements are so fast - even faster than light - that it seems like the stars around you are actually stripes. This way you will travel to another part of space, or even a parallel universe, like Alice who fell into a rabbit hole by accident and ended up in Wonderland.
Besides, those who cruise through Whole Hole make a journey through our existence, which begins and ends with moving towards the light: like a newborn baby seeing the light of life and who dies, seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. If you look closely, the water plays an essential role with the completion of the artwork: the reflection of light on the surface of the canal transforms the semicircle into a complete, round one.
