Anthony McCall, ‘Five Minutes of Pure Sculpture’

Anthony McCall has created these light installations at the Hamburger Bahnhof which transform from transparent waves of light to solid prisms. When I entered the pitch-black room, these tall prims of light subtly make their presence aware. Although the top halves of the prims looks solid & defined, at their bases, they are fluid and curvy.

Although an interactive and tactile experience, when photographed, the light installations are removed from their original context and created into something more mysterious & spacey – especially in the photo below! It also reminds me of all the experimental photography & film-making straight out of the Bauhaus school.
