Motion for Newton
Video on seven LED screens, b/w, mute, BE/DE, 2008, loop
Permanent installation of multiple light screen sculptures displaying a shared animation.
Inspired by the verticality of the seven screens and of skyscrapers in general, Anouk De Clercq created a constructivist mobile. Moving lines and geometrical patterns that are in constant movement. Gradually it becomes clear that the black-and-white patterns are nothing more than the play of light in the dark: like the play of the light behind the windows in skyscrapers, like the play of the headlights passing by on the freeway next to the seven screens.
The work is included in a book about Osram Seven Screens, published by Hatje Cantz.
