Phosphor


Phosphor is a site specific installation, created by the German artist Robert Henke to use ultraviolet light in painting temporary landscapes on a layer of phosphorous dust on the museum floor.

Operating on the concepts of ‘erosion’ and ‘mutation’, the installation changes its behaviour and visual appearance during the exhibition period. Each trace of light leaves a mark on a virtual mountain range, like water slowly washing out deep canyons.
