Star of Aï
The «Star of Aï», visible form Leysin or the Rhone Valley, is an artistic expression of light at the summit of the Berneuse. By this gesture, light transforms the landscape, becoming an interactif element, inviting the spectator to become an actor.
Dialling a given number on a telephone changes the colours in real time. Everyone can thus influence at their will the colours of this point of light. This light wavers, changes colour, questions, blinks, changes yet again. It is an element of a game. Green, red, blue, orange, it changes at will. The technique serves the game. Via mobile or ordinary telephone, every person intervening changes for a given moment the landscape seen by all. The point of light breaths, pulsates, lives at the rhythm of the phone calls.
