A hybrid screen-light sculpture, LINIE challenges traditional notions of moving image, restructuring perceptions of pixel formats.
Blending styles of simulated and randomized generative animation, “points of contact” is trying to visualize the struggle of individuals to be united in a world that is becoming more and more divided. It is about breaking down borders, metaphorical and physical walls that are causing people to be isolated, in times when they need support from others the most.
The piece is trying to show the color and beauty of diversity, and the opportunity and power of benefitting from perspectives, other than our own. Follow the journey of a single dot of light, and watch it overcome obstacles to meet up with more and more lonely particles until they are bright and colorful enough to change the little world they are inhabiting.

The choreography “77” uses the installation as a timeline, symbolically compressing 5.6 years of european history in one second to reflect the events unfolding in the seventy seven years between 1914 and 1991 and the emotions of the humans that lived through them.
