Computer controlled light work for Lille 2004 - European Cultural Capital, 2004

NATURE 04 is a public project, transforming the 20 story Lilleurope Tower into a luminous kinetic sculpture.

NATURE 04 takes the concepts of time, sequence and matrix to create a contemporary jacquemart, a mechanical public clockwork, animating specific kinetic patterns throughout the night.

In cycles, bursts of light spread over the sides of the tower and then subside again. Eventually there is only darkness and stillness – the tower rests as if exhausted. Regaining "consciousness" at specific moments, the light patterns often conclude with static icons, like punctuation marks along the timeline.
