Diffusion screen, Side emitting fiber optic
‘Portal’ creates a doorway from a diffuser screen and has abstract lines of light that travel back and forth through the door, bouncing around the room.
In architecture, a doorway represents the transition from one space to another. “Portal” visually displays this moment of change as a 2D plane using the diffuser screen. As viewers watch the light pass through the screen the clean lines diffuse and turn fuzzy.
Additionally, a sensor was set up at the doorway of the actual gallery space. So when visitors entered the gallery the light from “Portal” changed to a different color, signifying their transition from the outside space to the inside gallery.
Created as an installation for Roger Tator Galerie at Superflux in Lyon, France. December 2008
