Diepenheim Contrast

To celebrate the 10th edition of Kunstmoment Diepenheim, Toer designed a new interactive light Installation. A primitive light source driven by modern technology.

Hundred flint stone spark generators hang above the audience reacting on their presence. It combines a primitive light source with today’s technology to reflect the identity of the art village Diepenheim. A village where people live with modern facilities in an authentic environment. To strengthen the contrast, the project was installed in the oldest barn of the village.

Each spark generator has a small motor with a flint stone on a spring metal. When one get triggered by the sensors its motor starts to turn. The flint-stone hits the sand paper sides of the container, which results in a rain of sparks.
