Light is an immaterial medium and not visible to the human eye. Only through the surfaces of the objects surrounding us is the light scattered and reflected into our eyes. Light can therefore only be perceived and distinguished through this interrelationship and allows us to experience and see objects, places and spaces in ever new ways. This process results in an infinite number of variations of visual design with light, which can be used in lighting design. Selected light sources and illuminants are related or illuminated with different surfaces and materials, thus creating and controlling a variety of spatial effects. The installation investigates and illustrates the lighting process by filtering light through translucent material. Changing light colours, light intensities and different translucencies of the filters illustrate the influence of these factors in the spatial perception process.
