daniel schulze | bits beauty: light ray studies

project by bitsbeauty studio team
daniel schulze / hannes nützmann / benjamin frenzel

light is essential for objects to be perceived by the eye. but what happens in the space between light source, object and eye?

why is light invisible between objects? where are the borders between perceiving light and invisibility? whats the behaviour of the light ray until it will be perceived by our eye?
the installation “light ray studies” is a visual experiment to explore these questions. a light sculpture of changing patterns, symbols and figures in space. it creates a large volume with nothing but a light source and some mirrors to direct the light rays.

daniel schulze is a media artist and diplom industrial designer with a focus on interaction and experience. within the limits of design, art and technology his work examines the aesthetic potential of interaction and movement.
daniel's research looks at the idea that sight is the most important sense and he subsequently focuses on the beauty of the unseen. his artistic approach is inspired by the area at which the visible merges with the invisible and this is done by focusing on our environment or amplifying the normally not perceptible.
on that journey, technology, whilst in harmony with the impact of other factors, plays a large role as an encouraging component for that experience. in combining science, art and technology his work attempts to create intrigue, curiosity and a sense of wonder.
daniel schulze was born in 1981 in germany, and lives and works in berlin. his work has been presented in group shows in usa, japan and europe. he has been awarded a variety of different art prizes and has worked as a freelancer in berlin, london and barcelona. besides his freelance work he served as a guest lecturer and creative assistant in different universities in germany and in switzerland.
