Matthijs Munnik (NL) → Citadels: Lightscape

About project

The beguiling installation Lightscape is composed of two lightboxes filled with a disturbing twinkling light and audio waves emanating at the viewer from all sides. The impression of a hallucination is created by a stroboscopic effect that forms an illusion of various light shapes and patterns. As a result, visitors may explore the infinite intricacy of their own vision.
