Solaris — of or pertaining to the Sun

SOLARIS is a multi-sensory installation allowing the audience to be immersed in cosmic light and sound. This continuous 15 minute audio-visual journey takes the spectator through the stars onto the very surface of the sun. The soundscape includes real samples from NASA’s archives and is combined with an artistic visual interpretation of the files, bridging art and science. The hypnotic experience unfolds as a three-dimensional play of light within 442 pieces of suspended rope. The light installation expands over 15 meters in length, 7 in width and 6 meters in height.

Solaris is exhibited as a part of the official programme of Copenhagen Light Festival 2020. The artists behind the installation are Mihkel Pajuste and Mariliis Kundla.
