Re-ACT Interactive Light Art

Interactivity and light, these are the two ingredients for the Re-ACT exposition at the Centrum Kunstlicht in de Kunst in Eindhoven. The exposition is the result of the bi-annual Frits Philips Light Art contest. Of the 86 artists participating, 8 works were selected. Stefan Gross and Stella Boess were declared the winners of the contest with their Love Hate Punch.

For those unfamiliar with interactive art, Re-ACT might be the exposition to make you appreciate and maybe even love ‘new’ art. It seeks to blur the boundaries between the artificial-nature, viewer-artist-artwork, and art-world in playful and surprising ways. Consider your own human body, for example, as the source of interactivity and experience. On this and similar issues these artworks reflect. They mirror how we construct our reality and how we could imagine and even create an altered world by experiencing art.
