dark energy

Installation, "liquid area", Flottmann-Hallen, Herne, Germany
in the scope of "mapping the region"/"Ruhr.2010"


Seven spirals are installed on the floor of the exhibition hall,
each of them is connected to a pump and a tank. Inside the tubing
water intersected by airbubbles is in a constant move.
The water is coloured dark by finely ground charcoal tablets, the shade
of each spiral is slightly different, the variations range from light grey to black.
All spirals' movement is directed towards their center,
so that an almost hypnotic maelstrom is created.
