Lighthouses explores the potential of glass in the generation of light and sound signals, unstable and fleeting. The phenomenon of diffraction – approached as a material, spatial and collaborative process (Haraway, 1997; Barad, 2007) – is central to this research. Thus, the work is actualized according to this principle of “unexpected collisions” between the programming, the space, the time passing by, the movements of light, the fragile materialities, ourselves as artists and the viewers. While the glass squares strike the ground, it produce traces and move small piles of broken glass resulting in unpredictable sounds, material breaks and color patterns which continuously transform the project through time.
