Lucka 17

Opening number 17 in the Advent Calendar 2008 of BellmanLarssonLindströmNord.

In a window on the first floor the calendar opens every day in advent for fifteen minutes. I built a big kaleidoscope and had a thirteen meter strech of reflective pattern slowly fall behind it. The audience was given flashlights to be able to reflect the light on the pattern and in that way make it visible and glowing. In the end the pattern is pulled back again to create the sense of fast movement or the gravity of a black hole. Maybe we are watching the birth, life and collapse of the star of Betlehem.
