stelarc // Prosthetic Head This is not an illustration of a disembodied intelligence. Rather, notions of awareness, identity, agency and embodiment become problematic. Just as a physical body has been exposed as inadequate, empty and involuntary, so simultaneously the ECA becomes seductive with its uncanny simulation of real-time recognition and response. Initially decisions would have to be made about its database and whether The PROSTHETIC HEAD is a pathological, philosophical or simply a flirting head. A problem would arise though when the PROSTHETIC HEAD increases its database, becoming more autonomous in its responses. Light-Space Modulator Three moveable metal and/or glass structures arranged on a rotating disc form the core of the Light-Space Modulator. However, it only develops its impact in a darkened space, such as the “cubic box” envisioned by Moholy-Nagy, where it produces spectacular shadow formations in an interplay with coloured and white light. The kinetic sculpture was first displayed in 1930 as part of the German contribution to the Deutscher Werkbund (German Work Federation) exhibition in Paris. That same year, its effects were the subject of the film Lichtspiel Schwarz-Weiß-Grau (Light Play Black-White-Grey), which was directed by Moholy-Nagy. In 1931, the work, also known as Light Prop for an Electric Stage, was to be exhibited in the planned but never realised installation Raum der Gegenwart (Room of the Present Day) in the Provinzialmuseum, Hanover.

Sarah Beck The Light is a sculpture that honours the final days of the tungsten light bulb. As of 2015 the light bulb as we know it, also called the Edison bulb, will no longer be produced in North America. While this marks an advance in environmental responsibility, it also marks the death of a technology that changed the world. The light bulb ushered in a new era with an impact was so great that it came to symbolize a bright idea. As this technology fades into the past, The Light is an epitaph that invites contemplation of change, hope, passage and death.
Horizon is an Imaginary Line Horizon is an Imaginary Line is an experimental light and electroacoustic installation that innovates the use of a moving image projected through haze in purpose of creating tangible sensation of light and transforming the perception of space into a poetic experience of nature. The videos are designed to sculpt the light while emulating the vast scale of the universe and sublimity of nature. Kinetic light sculptures are accompanied by electroacoustic and ambisonic composition that is also made to transform the poetic experience of space and creates ever-changing experience.
