The interactive audiovisual installation Slit Mirror Pong reacts to human movements in space and transforms them into luminous traces of light.
It consists of a rectangular frame in which two modules move along a linear path, equipped with a light source and a distance sensor.
The moment the two modules meet on their track, they emit a powerful flash of light that illuminates the surface covered with phosphorescent ink.
A glow effect develops and lasts a few minutes until it finally burns out again.
At the same time, each module lights up when the associated sensor detects the presence of a person in the room.
The distance between person and module affects not only the intensity of the flash, but also the speed at which it moves.
Unpredictable interactions change the original movement patterns.
This process of change becomes evident through the temporary inscription of light.
Both modules seem to transform into living units that adhere to their program, but at the same time respond to changing conditions in their environment.
