The ‘light’ sculpture by Martin Hesselmeier and Andreas Muxelper gives back mass and ‘weight’ to light. Thus, it revolves general conventions that convey the border between materiality and immateriality, between real and virtual. “Therefore The Weight of Light – explain the two artist in their text that accompanies the project – goes beyond expected behaviour. Thus the matter of light traverses a re-interpretation of our known reality”. What before was a supposition is now becoming more and more a tangible truth.
The project won the INTERNATIONAL LIGHT ART AWARD 2015 and it was presented within the Ars Electronica Festival, 2018
