PhD research topic:

Light and Installations - The Use of a Minimum Natural Light Source in Interactive Video-Installations

This PhD research focuses on the investigation of the function of a minimum natural light source – which is specified as the light of a candle - and the role and potential of light sources in the field of Art, which relates to interactive video-installations. Each chapter of the thesis is accompanied by its corresponding installation.

The particular research (a) refers to the metamorphoses of the minimum natural light source, as well as the meanings and symbolisms, which it has acquired through centuries. Additionally, (b) it aims to bring out those properties, which give to light a prominent role in Art and especially in the field of new media and its applications. Finally, (c) it examines the dynamics of the minimum light source - if something like this indeed exists – as well as light as an independent and sovereign entity in the work.
