The Return

modified LED screens, solar panels, solar charge controller, cables, 12V battery, 2018

The site specific installation made from modified laptop screens reflects lights at night time and is powered by a 12V battery that charges during day time from two solar panels. The work plays with a poetic relationship between the sun and the modified screens, with the cycle of collecting and returning energy — a give and take. The installation creates a day-time-night-time conversation between the sun and the screens spanning through space and time.

The work’s simplicity and DIY aesthetic wants to remind of the precarious environment we live in that is momentarily suspended in a safety promising beam of light, before darkness takes back what human hand has made.
