100 years ago, Albert Einstein received a Nobel Prize in Physics for his work on the photoelectric effect, which allows us to distinguish color through light. The performance is inspired by not only this work, but also Einstein more personally. Named after the concept ‘Syzygy – a close union or shadowing of celestial bodies’, the artist creates a mobile performance in two bicycle mounted sections that work together in visual tandem. Images and abstractions of the solar eclipse, a phenomenon that was heavily influential for Einstein in his later work, are projected on an artificial cloud of mist. We witness the shifting colours as they move through space and can follow them in real time as the mobile performance travels through the city.

Installation is supported by: Cycleurope Sverige AB.
