24 kW

In the classicist entrance hall of the Brixen Cathedral, 12 spotlights create a glistening bright light space visible from afar. The light in the installation is used from the recovered energy (24kW/h in total) obtained by switching off the surrounding church lighting. Symbolically, light stands for good and for the origin of life. However, the physical experience of extreme glare and radiant heat also points to its destructive power. In cooperation with the Diocese of Bozen-Brixen, which has joined the Climate Alliance, the energy consumption of the installation is neutralised by switching off church lighting in Bressanone and the surrounding area.
