Day-Night

Non-standard installation, wood, engine.

How to go from a dark room to a light one without having a traditional window in between as it is in projection places? I started that work basing my thought on that question. I am working on a project to make a cylinder which, by a rotational motion, would allow to go from day to night. This cylinder will be in the middle of plasterboard partitions. An engine will make the cylinder to turn at 2tr/min. Public will be trapped into a kind of moving cage locking them slowly in dark and bringing them light back. We pass from day to night two times every full turn of the cylinder. The aim is not to cause claustrophobic crisis but to make us think about day and night rhythm balancing life. This path from day to night is maybe the most visible part of the cycle.
