ORBIS’ is an installation where two light sources dialogue in order to increase the value of the shadow concept, by removing its negative connotation and increasing its beauty.

Can we think of a shadow that produces light? Can we reverse the usual relationship between light and shadow in a way that we create an illuminated shadow? Can an object create linght and shadow simultaneously?

The students of MEATS of ELISAVA have worked on these questions to suggest a dynamic conversation between two light sources that compete to remove the frontiers between light and shadow; a subtle and changing choreography where the usual roles of light and shadow will dilute in a continuous dance.
