This kinetic light sculpture is partly buried in the ground. When standing afar, it looks like a glass cube covering a kinetic sculpture of illuminated tubes resembling a ladder. However, when looking from above, one sees an end- less tunnel.
he idea behind this is similar to the isual e ect experienced when standing between two parallel mirrors his phe- nomenon gives a magical feeling that
is very self centered, seeing endless re ections of oneself
In this structure, however, one mirror is one-sided and the viewer stands behind it, seeing endless re ections of the ob- ect between the two mirrors his takes one to a position of an outside observer to something that is usually unseen. he structure is built with aluminium and PVC for the lower part of which
the bottom is a full mirror he surface above, at ground level, is a one-sided mirror, directed to re ect the ob ects between the two mirrors. Between this structures lies part of the kinetic sculp- ture, built of illuminated horizontal
tubes hese tubes are linked to one another and when in motion, creating a spiral e ect he second part of the kinetic sculpture is above ground and can be spotted from afar he sculp- ture is covered with acrylic glass to create a weath- er proof structure as well as an anchoring point.
When the installation was built for the second time in Jerusalem, the entire structure was above ground due to restrictions in digging in the old city. he pro ect was created in collabora- tion with media artist Liat Segal who built the electron- ics and created the program.
