With the help of the element laser light I try to realize a spatial constellation, which structures the space rhythmically and allows the space, the void or the darkness, to be experienced as a force field. Seeing becomes the spectacle of an unlimited energy and lightful relationship. My vision is to realize energetic periods of time, in which the past and the future coincide presently, incessantly on the way, which opens up new periods of time…, Rainer Plum describes his work.
“I understand the public sphere as a communication platform that enables interested visitors and artists to participate.”
