Daniel von Sturmer
Painted Light is a major public art commission by Daniel von Sturmer, spanning the building’s first floor to the crest of the rooftop, to echo the iconic U‑Channel glass façade. To create the visual effect, von Sturmer filmed multiple versions of dripping paint, one colour slowly sliding down over another, and then carefully converted the video sequences into light using LED technology. Every 15 or so minutes the ‘canvas’ is flooded before a new sequence commences, creating a gentle rhythm. The work continues von Sturmer’s light-based installations that expand the potential for moving image and the use of light technology within art.
