Abstract (2017)

Light features

Through its use of light, Abstract seeks embody Einstein's theory – according to which "the flow of time is an illusion" – in space and make it more intelligible to the public. A forest of vertical masts decorates the lawns of the Place Antonin Poncet. Brightly lit triangles move over these masts to music with almost hypnotic slowness, symbolising the inexorable passing of time. The synchronised choreography invites visitors to stroll around the installation, slowly or briskly as they please.
