Installation view at the 2006 Biennale of Sydney, Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia.

An interactive installation including 144 robot fluorescent light controlled by 7 electronic surveillance systems. As people stroll under the piece, the light tubes rotate to develop labyrinthine patterns of light that are “paths” or “corridors” between them.

This offers a reconfigurable light-space that is based on circulation, on movement, on lines of sight,– a desired contrast to the modernist grid that currently organizes the court.
