Light Matter


A black-and-white film that lets you see colors.

Attention! This film contains flashing lights which may not be suitable for light-sensitive epilepsy.

Initially barely noticeable, the first dim flashes of light become continuously brighter and more intense over a period of five minutes. Towards the end they become a staccato of light and dark stimuli that evoke psychedelic colour impressions in the audience. "Light Matter" takes advantage of a physiological phenomenon where the rapid change from light to dark triggers color perception in the brain without the detour via the receptors of color vision in the eye.

For best results please view in darkness with maximum monitor brightness. Or in a cinema.
