Carsten Nicolai and Olaf Bender

The sound and light work of Carsten Nicolai and Olaf Bender explores the limitations of what we can see and hear. Taking this as its point of departure, white line light uses electricity as a conduit to identify and lend shape to the invisible and inaudible phenomena in our midst, at the same time creating a palpable tension between the work itself and its unique architectural setting.
