Sound and Light - Sons et Lumiere

A few years ago I went to an exhibition at the Pompidou and the experience has stayed with me ever since. In particular the piece, L’EXPÉDITION SCINTILLANTE, ACT 2, UNTITLED (LIGHT BOX), by Pierre Huyghe affected me deeply.

This was simply a double layered light box, with music and dry ice shown in a darkened space. It had the essential elements to reach out to each viewer/audience member and people moved reluctantly on from the room. It conjured other worlds elsewhere in fact and fiction.
