Dark Matter light sculpture was created by Viktor Vicsek and Elektro Moon Vision commissioned by Conrad Festival 2017, Patchlab Digital Art Festival 2017 and Hungarian Institute of Culture in Warsaw, within the Year of Hungarian Culture.
Dark Matter was inspired by the mood of “Heart of Darkness” – the novel written by Joseph Conrad, which refers to the main theme of Conrad Festival – Anxiety. The installation invited the visitor to enter a mysterious and undefined world. Interactive light sculpture situated in the center, can sense human presence and depending on the amount of people and their position, it changes its form by modifying the lights, like a living non-terrestrial organism. The sculpture includes excerpts from the book in three languages: Polish, Hungarian and English. Ambient sounds increase the impression of being out of touch with reality and being immersed in a mysterious, dark world from another dimension.
Installation was exposed 24-29.10.2017 at Pałac Czeczotki /ul. św. Anny 2/ – headquarter of Conrad Festival 2017.
