Light Matter

Posted by

A black-and-white film that lets you see colors.

Initially barely noticeable, the first dim flashes of light become continuously brighter and more intense over a period of five minutes. Towards the end, they become a staccato of light and dark stimuli that evoke psychedelic colour impressions in the audience. “Light Matter” takes advantage of a physiological phenomenon where the rapid change from light to dark triggers color perception in the brain without the detour via the receptors of color vision in the eye.

Directed by Virgil Widrich (Austria)
