Photon Vortex Light, Description by Arnout Meijer:
“You constitute the object that you look at by looking at it
Photon Vortex is a light object shaped by persistence of vision. The positive afterimage of the human eye materializes the path of a moving light source. When this kinetic object spins fast enough the light appears to be made of static floating circles.
Together with the focal glow against the wall the led circles create an intangible composition of different layers of light.
