Paint­ed Light

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.
