inver inver

the room installation inver consists of two opposing elemental constituents: a black spot and white light. the surface of the black spot on the one side of the room is the darkest existing black to date, absorbing incoming light up to 99,7%. opposite to it, there is a ultra light spot projected by a white laser beam whose strong contrast almost imperceptible to the human eye. between the poles of inver – black and white, absorption and reflection – the visitor is placed in an area of transition.
