NIGHTFALL


An hourglass filled with water mixed with black ink is turned over every 15 minutes. Slowly, the water runs out and covers a lamp below, plunging onlookers into darkness. This device artificially reproduces an everyday natural phenomenon: the falling of the night.


Groups are invited to spend this transition together around this object, slowly watching the world and each other disappear. Combining technology and poetry, this installation makes us aware of all the experiences this simple phenomenon unleashes on us, whether sensory, cognitive or physiological.
