Emotion: Carefree joy

ELECTRIC MOONS is a kinetic installation that celebrates the power of light and weightlessness. The installation consists of illuminated balloons arranged on a grid, evoking the image of celestial bodies dancing elegantly in the air. Through the deliberate interplay of movement, changing lighting and atmospheric music, the viewer is immersed in a unique and ephemeral experience. The arrangement of the balloons is constantly evolving, creating new formations in space. ELECTRIC MOONS is a dynamic sculpture consisting of floating objects, light and a synchronized rhythmic and textural sound composition. ELECTRIC MOONS invites the audience on a multi-sensory journey documenting the ephemeral nature of the creative act. An extraordinary experience that challenges the static nature of perception, opens the doors to new sensory perspectives and encourages reflection on the fleeting and changing beauty of art.
