The Labyrinth of Light

The Labyrinth of Light is a sentient exhibition without a fixed script. It is up to the visitors to create their own experiences. Visitors work with different forms of light – and without light alltogether – in seven rooms, each with its own scenographic character.

The Labyrinth of Light

  • A fascinating world of light phenomena set up in a labyrinth.
  • New versions of well-known classics.
  • The Laser Harp can be placed in several different areas of an exhibition.The-Laser-Harp

The Laser Harp

While visitors play music on strings of light, they discover that laser light is different from other types of light.

The exhibit is designed as a round vertical grid of thin green laser beams in a fog of light. You can play by yourself or play music in harmony with others. Because of the lasers, safety has been highly prioritized and has been thoroughly tested.

Lights on - lights off

Lights on – lights off

The colourless room

In this room, colours disappear when they are illuminated by a sodium discharge lamp, which only emits yellow light.

Visitors can shine torches on different objects with normal light and discover that the colours are not always as you would expect them to be. A number of coloured objects that we all know or recognise are on display: a crocodile, a bottle of ketchup and pictures of people.

Make colours with filters

Visitors can experience so-called subtractive colour mixing. By using different shapes and figures in the colours of cyan, magenta and yellow on a white, luminous table, new colours are created. Visitors are challenged with new tasks, just as they can use mirrors to multiply the patterns that occur when the shapes and figures are used.
