In hardly any other artistic oeuvre do light and movement play such an essential role as in that of the famous "ZERO" protagonist Heinz Mack. In order to make these elusive phenomena optically effective, he began experimenting with numerous innovative materials as early as in the 1950s, integrating various structures and surface properties, in order to make selected sensory experiences the key element of the artwork. In his oeuvre, the content of his works does not change, - the aspiration of greater intensity, greater effectiveness remains. Once a visual solution has been found, Mack elevates it to the basic principle that runs through his entire oeuvre.
Mack also plays with these optical and aesthetic qualities in our light relief from 1989. Kinetics and light, interwoven in an extraordinary way, enter into a sensitive dialogue with the viewer. In particular, the material properties of the fine aluminum mesh - a material that Mack had found in the aircraft industry – allow for a tense contrast between statics and dynamics under the influence of incident light, which prompts the vis-à-vis to interact.
