In its installation Parabolic Lightcloud, Amigo & Amigo uses more than 1,000 lights to make something invisible visible: our human emotions. With different color combinations, patterns and transitions they show us intense emotions such as love and happiness, but also calmness and sadness. A digitally-controlled medium like this light installation can have a powerful influence on our mood and our actions without us realizing it. Parabolic Lightcloud takes its shape from the parabola (a U-shaped line) on the famous mathematical figure, the Fibonacci spiral.
