(Interactive light display, shorlisted in Bombay Saphire competition, 2006, collaboration with Gerardo Fernández Espín)
Each individual kaleidolight consists of a glass cylinder with an aluminium lid screwed on one of its ends (threaded). The whole component is inserted from the inside of the wall into a cylindrical hole in the wall and protrudes on the façade because it is longer than the thickness of the wall. The degree of insertion (and protrusion) can be manually adjusted, thus the amount of light that gets filtered-in is controllable and the atmosphere within the room can change dramatically.
Light travels from the outside along the glass cylinder through conductivity and bounces on the inner side of the aluminium lid which has a mirrored surface and is finally indirectly projected onto the inner side of the wall in the form of a hallo around the hole in the wall. In a homologous way, at night, the outer façade expresses the indoors inhabitation by spilling light through its protruding cylinders.
