Lichtrotor spins light in space. Rotating arms of light orbit whoever dares to step inside. The roaring sound of industrial motors and the blinding light of high performance LEDs wrap around a subject standing or laying underneath. We developed a system of gears and shafts that allow for Lichtrotor’s three rotating arms to be controlled individually. Through an external controller the speed and direction of the rotation can be adjusted to choreograph the installation. The resulting performance can be quite harmonious or in contrast very rough to experience for the subject.
