Curtain of Light is an immersive, interactive light and sound art installation. A barrier of light divides the exhibition space, which visitors are encouraged to push against. This ethereal boundary moves in response to the touch of visitors. Via this work, an environment is created which forces people to confront the barriers between them. As an interactive art installation that is open to the public, their goal is to create a work that encourages strangers to interact and connect with one another. Participating in Curtain of Light acts as a catalyst for dissolving barriers and bringing people together through a common experience. In light of recent political events, it has become clear that humanity is living in an increasingly divided and isolationist world. However, many of these perceived divisions are superficial. Curtain of Light acknowledges and dispels these arbitrary divisions. Although both the physical and psychological walls that divide us may seem solid and unmoving, through this work we show just how fragile these constructs are. When you start to resist and push back, they fall away. Curtain of Light was created by Jack Kalish and Rachel Ciavarella in association with Floating Point
