Nathaniel Rackowe with, Aarhus, Denmark

Major large-scale permanent public commission, Origin, is now installed in Aarhus, Denmark, commissioned by the city of Aarhus.


At the core of Origin is a tilted, twisted cube of light, defined by its glowing edges. A drawing with light in space, that slowly appears, fades into life, first with a line, then a square. Next a corner, then a plane, flickering between two dimensions, then three, as this form gradually begins to resolve itself. As the lines of light switch and move, the cube seems kinetic, the intensity of the movement increasing until finally a complete three-dimensional cuboid is revealed.
