The light artwork Lightholders is based on the gas holders, formerly located on the NRE site in Eindhoven, in the shape of large, round storage spaces.
The concept of using sound loops and making them visible is inspired by the sound experiments done by Philips in the 60’s by artists like Dick Raaijmakers. We created three Lightholders, two with a diameter of 15 meters and one with a diameter of 21 meters, all have the same 3 meters height. Each object contains several hundreds of led pixels.
Every circle contains several audio loops and will be played in random order but within their sound composition. The audio loops are in sync with light animations so the movement and sound is directly visible. The sounds are all moving around the public, creating a spacial hearing.The sound samples are composed by the producers duo Walvisnest.
