Interactive light installation
The Match Gallery // until 1 September
OPENING: Friday, 24 May, at 9:30 p.m.

The interactive project of the Italian artist Cinzia Campolese belongs to the domain of kinetic art; it is an ambient work, consisting of several laser water scales, which, with their operation, enable a unique transformation of the space, simultaneously influencing the viewer’s perception in a playful manner. Water scales respond to the presence of viewers in the space and equipped with electric motors enable continuous movement of laser beams. The project raises questions about the nature of space or about its transformation into a kind of living organism; it denies space its static Cartesian nature and changes it into a dynamic environment that conjures the illusion of spatial undulations. The latter thus becomes a unique factor, a scene of transformation and interaction between the installation and visitors.

CINZIA CAMPOLESE was born in Italy; since 2016, she has been living and working in Montreal, Canada. Before that, she lived in Paris for five years, where she familiarised herself in more detail with new lighting technologies and, with a group of co-authors, tackled several projects, such as AV performances, light installations and video mapping.  Her artistic practice stems from the intersection between digital and physical spaces, whereby she often explores their impact on the social and cultural environment and, at the same time, highlights the relationships between light, technology and environment. Her artistic practice includes installations, sculptures, videos and prints. She exhibited at numerous high-profile exhibitions and festivals around the world, especially in North America and Europe.
