A 13 meters high steel structure carries 12 curves with 6 or 18 white light sources each. The light is faded in and out in a sequence controlled by traffic on a nearby pedestrian bridge.
The curves are modeled after a motion grab of a young person walking. When the speed of the sequence goes beyond the persistence of vision, the experience of the light goes from single fading lights to the perception of motion: A volumetric 3D representation of a walking figure.
