Infinite Patterns of Light Dance Across a 130 Foot Wall


Unidisplay is an audiovisual installation designed by German artist Carsten Nicolai. He used real-time projections, large-scale screens, and mirrors to create this distinct installation in which black and white lights display a visual interpretation of sound and time. The artist says that he enjoys creating visuals that perform for his audience, and often uses scientific concepts, combined with artistic vision, to develop his work.

Unidisplay is roughly 130 feet long, and Nicolai describes the piece as an “examination of semiotics and the laws of perception.” Lights flicker, flash, and move across the screens, and appear infinite as they reflect off of the mirrors set at either end of the wall. The various sequences and graphic translations present viewers with all kinds of optical illusions and challenge expectations of perception. Visitors will find themselves examining the concepts of time and space as they become mesmerized by the light displays set against an infinitely dark room.
