St. Peter’s Church Square

The installation by Anita Ackermann called “Evening rise” creates an interplay between the viewer, a moving object and the environment. Festival visitors can become the choreographers of this object; the light source is in the hands of the viewer. When the subject is moving, the light moves over environmental surfaces, creating a kaleidoscopic effect. Viewer participation creates a sense of continuous motion. Depending on movement and positioning, viewers blur the borders of their physical existence in a particular space and seemingly transform the environment with radiance. The object was previously exhibited in the Tallinn Light Festival.

Authors and implementers of the object: Anita Ackermann (Germany)
