Hypnotizing Lights Look Friendly Until They Trap You

Isotopes v.2 looks alluring. All those pretty, pulsating lines of light draw people in. Relaxing. But once they get in there, things start to change. The lights become more constant and intense. Basically they put people in a somewhat oppressive light prison. Soooo, probably not relaxing.

As part of the Geneva Mapping Festival, Nonotak Studio produced Isotopes v.2 as a commentary on the Fukushima nuclear accident and nuclear power in general.

The goal is to create a scenario where viewers initially have a positive and calm reaction to the instillation, but slowly grow more uneasy as they interact with it. Friendly! [Nanotak via My Modern Met]
