Danish artist duo AVPD (Peter Døssing and Aslak Vibæk) has created a new work for die raum titled 'Vertical Time'. The piece is a light installation in constant transformation. It consists of 4 strip lights in two different daylight nuances mounted on the wall in a vertical formation. The fluorescent lamps are programmed to constantly increase or decrease in light intensity from 0 to 100 %, each in their own cycle independently of the others. The cycle of the whole piece lasts 100.000 seconds or 27,7 hours. Due to the physical characteristics of die raum, the viewer is able to experience the full installation cycle at any time, day or night. Slightly out of sync with our daily 24-hour rhythm, the installation produces subtle shifts of ever-changing light levels during the entire exhibition period — like a slow asynchronous pulse.
