Until it hits the surface of matter, light and colour are just an ILLUSION. Colours are in a continuous state of flux and can only be understood in relation to the other colours that surround them. Different wavelengths of light produce the colours that we call the visible spectrum in our brain - between infrared and ultraviolet. Human perception of colour is subjective and varies according to individual possibilities. The perception of colour as a manifestation of light is a counterpoint to IDEOLOGY, whose material existence manifests itself in the actions of an individual. In the Schloßbergstollen, the setting of many dark stories mainly influenced by war and exploitation, ideology meets illusion, shade meets colour, darkness meets light. The light spectrum installation flows in a loop along the passageway. In combination with the light-space interventions in the caves we can explore the relationship between colours.
