Aram Bartholl (de)

Light installation, 2009

0,16 is a light installation which translates shadows into a pixelated image in real time. A static headlight illuminates a translucent wall that is divided into an array of open compartments. The shadows of passing visitors are broken into squares. The uneven light distribution is mixed in each compartment through three layers of paper into a homogeneous gray tone at the front. The actual resolution of the 'screen' is 0.16 pixels per inch.
