Rota takes light as a means to explore motion and perception. Geometrically arranged, the light objects move in an orchestrated rotation, animating the surface of the wall through a continual variation of light and shadow. Despite taking the guise of a typically minimalist structure, the individual light sources turn in a gentle, almost organic, manner. This highly intelligible form of illumination revolves in mesmerising sequences that unite algorithmic control with immediate, physical motion. The distorting display created by the moving light experiments with human perceptions of order and chaos, exploring the meaning we can bestow upon abstract motion.
