Phōs is an interactive webproject by Daria Jelonek which deals with the complexity of light, room and time. It shows 24 hours of light in different places of the world. It is both an homage to natural light and an aesthetic experience of light.
The concept behind Phōs is the installation of cameras that broadcast live, the appearance of light on the three main physical states of matter, that are substantial for the different appearance of light: liquid, gas, solid. Besides matter and time there is a third factor that determines and fulfils the appearance of light: location and view direction (aspect). Hence Phōs films light in the 4 main compass directions: north, east, south, west.
‘Technological Nature’ is a recent short film by media artist and designer Daria Jelonek exploring the emulation of natural phenomena with technology. Auroras, rainbows, and glaring sunlight, are all recreated with everyday materials in an eerily empty domestic environment.
