Let There be Light


Stained glass windows in churches and TV sets have a common quality. Both are fed by glowing backlight. In this installation, stained glass windows were set in motion to make them move like TV pictures.


The “saints” in these windows are silhouettes of 30 individual people from all five continents, speaking in 30 different languages. They speak simultaneously about their ideal worlds.

Curated by Mark Gisbourne, this installation was shown at Rohkunstbau in Schloss Marquardt in 2010, containing a chapel with a rosette and six gothic- shaped windows.
