Animated Sphere

2008. Metal construction, monofilament, light bulb, electric transformer. Diameter 105 cm.

Development and realization with: Tanja Cvetko, Iva Curic, Snjezana Ban, Petra Kriletic, Rado Crvik, Margareta Milacic

In a pitch-black room, a maze of tiny dots of light floats in the air. As the viewer slowly walks towards them, these specks seem to move in numerous directions; one becomes immersed in micro-universe of stars or a dancing swarm of fireflies. Spherical metal construction (geodesic sphere) is interwoven with monofilament and suspended from the ceiling, in the middle of the room. The monofilament lines are stretched from each connecting point of the sphere to all the others. A tiny light bulb is suspended in the center of the sphere. A visible maze of over four thousand dots is created by light reflected of the monofilament. Seeing the reflections, as much as the forms created by them, depends on the observer’s position, motion and walking pace. The imagery moves in relation to the observer’s exploration of the space.
