In my works, I intend to develop a new form of artistic-architectural language - based on the interplay of light and movement - mediating between perception, body and space. (Stefanie Wilhelm)

Light and movement are the main protagonists in this installation at the Glass Cube underneath an arch of the metro line along the Gürtel, transforming it into a composed, yet vibrant counter-space within one of the city's most frequented traffic areas.

Inside the cube, reflecting panels rotate around their axis. In the dark, as well as in daylight and sunshine, these rotating panels are transformed into luminous bodies. Each change in light conditions brings – in the true sense of the word – stunning nuances to light. Pulsing traffic, mirrored in the cube's glass walls, contrasts with the installation's changes of light and colour. A calm enclave of perception emerges in the city's roaring stream of light and movement – an invitation to perceive and experience the contrast between rush and tranquility.
