They subsequently are filled with an elaborate electrical circuit, connecting hundreds of LEDs. The wooden planks are transformed into cyborg-like, illuminating surfaces.

Together with their production company Schneider, they have given me great technical assistance during the development of this project, and I would once again like to thank them for their generous support.
