A Lightbeam Installation for Refshaleøen

Interactive Light Installation in an abandoned Shipyard

In an alternative path of light, the unexpected is lit up. A series of motion sensors cut the light off along a path running parallel to an old dock - the person walking the path is caught in darkness.The sensors simultaneously cause other elements of the former shipyard of Refshaleøen to illuminate, lifting them out of darkness. The installation’s various points of light illuminate objects from the past that still exist on the island, yet in some cases no longer have a function.
