Gosh! Is it alive?
Lighting design created for the hiper-realistic exhibition ‘Gosh! Is it alive?’ at ARKEN Museum of Modern Art uses light as a medium to create stories, empathy and trigger emotions to its guests. It seeks to support and express the overall mood of the exhibition by exploring the relation between the real and unreal.
The lighting design created for the exhibition is composed of two different lighting layers: artwork and, or aesthetical. The artwork layer focuses on creating a coherent visual experience throughout the exhibition and transforms the visitors perception of the artwork by using a variation of direction, distribution and positioning of light while still providing and respecting the light level requirements for each artwork. The aesthetical layer is used as the main component for telling the exhibition narrative and seeks to enhance the story of each room. By a single governing principle this layer creates a subtle light scenography for the artworks.
