The Walk, a light installation, 2.5-meter diameter sphere comprising 5000 pixels with a total of 35,000 LED’s.
The Walk The sphere is both, an object and a spherical screen showing a 7.5 minute long video loop. The viewer is invited to enter the procession, to approach it the sphere and to walk around it without ever getting away from its lights. An illusory story unfolds based on Dante's Divine Comedy of the journey from Inferno to Purgatory, giving a sense of catharsis and the transition from fire to light. Flames and figures with torches appear through ghostly imagery like a non-stop procession towards the after-life.
Visitors follow the rhythm of the work; en route to somewhere else, the two are synchronization, giving this rhythm a trance-like echo. In her work of art, Ex investigates the interaction between visitor, space and artwork which can entice us to reflect on our personal search for light.
