Incidence of Light (2019)

Mariska de Groot uses optical sound as a medium to create immersive environments, where light and sound are one. Incidence of Light explores the possibilities of a single sculptural object and 360˚ light-to-sound scores. Using a selection of white LED’s, rotating masks and mirrors, different light frequencies peek through the small openings of a slowly rotating cylindrical graphical score, creating a light composition on the walls and possible objects (and visitors) in the room, while primitive cameras on top of the sculpture scan the patterns and make the rhythmic light / dark parts in the room audible. The translation from light to sound happens one on one.
