Light installation AnTUenna consists of ample 10,000 LED lights attached to the chimney at the ‘groene loper’ of the University of Technology campus. These LED lights generate red, green and blue light and are individually controlled in colour and intensity by a central controlling system. These light points are grouped around the chimney in rings of 60 LEDs each. It starts with a 15 centimetres’ distance between the upper two rings to be increased up to a distance of several metres between the two lowest rings. Horizontally, the distance varies between 14 and 32 centimetres. And owing to this specific division, a conic, low resolution screen appears which depicts images, videos and animations to be seen at great distance.
During GLOW, several moving image projects are shown representing scientific and technical processes. These images are supplied by several faculties of the University of Technology, exemplary for the many fascinating studies that take place on campus. After GLOW, AnTuenna will remain on site permanently.
Synchronised with the moving images sound is sent by means of internet which can be listen to on the website www.antuenna.nl with the help of your mobile phone. Sounds are created by sound artist Rob van Rooy (Rot8ion).
