Artificial lighting and temporary architecture, lighting and control development, video and animation design are part of the extensive portfolio of lighting and media designer Tobias Link. Interdisciplinary projects combining light, media, sound and architectural aspects into a new synthesis, are focus of his work.
For the facade of the new insta building Tobias Link designs dynamic light images. The title “fox fire” refers to one of the legends which have entwined around the phenomena of light “Aurora Boreal”. There are optical phenomena such as ribbons, veils and fields of coloured light, which primarily light up the sky in the Arctic and Antarctic regions. In the myths of Finland and Lapland these light images are drawn in the sky by a fox. The installation can be seen from dusk until dawn.
LichtRouten-Site: Insta-building, Hohe Steinert 10
In 2001 the foundation of the new Insta building was laid on the site of the former barracks of the Belgian. This was due to the merging of different production sites located all over the city of Lüdenscheid before. Gradually, various stages of construction were completed. After a construction period of one year the 50 meters long, 30 meters wide and 18 meters tall high bay warehouse will be put in operation in 2014. The facade is equipped with lines of LEDs in order to allow changing light scenes.
