Fari – Choreographed array of moving light heads

Created by Andreas Gysin in collaboration with Sidi Vanetti, Fari is a kinetic installation created with an array of moving light heads. The array is displayed in a geometric configuration, a circle and programmed as a choreography. The light shutter is opened with parsimony as the focus is on the movements and the sounds of the motors - the moving heads themselves rather than the light that can produced.

Instead of hidden in the scene in this situation the moving heads become the protagonists. For this first prototype twenty smaller moving heads were used. Bigger and louder lamps are preferred as their presence, size and distance of observation should convey a slight feeling of menace to the audience.
