Hatch

Commissioned by the Amsterdam light festival in December 2013 and by the
Jerusalem light festival in June 2014. “Hatch” is an opening or a peephole to endless inner depths. 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 endless tunnel. The idea behind this is similar to the visual effect experienced when standing between two parallel mirrors. This phenomenon gives a magical feeling that is very self-centered, seeing endless reflections of oneself. In this structure, however, one mirror is one-sided and the viewer stands behind it, seeing endless reflections of the object between the two mirrors. This takes one to a position of an outside observer to something that is usually unseen. The structure is built with aluminum and PVC for the lower part of which the bottom is a full mirror. A collaboration project with new-media artist Liat Segal.
