77. lighthouse

Built a light installation for the old lighthouse in Mangalia, a small seaside resort on the Black Sea in Romania. Two numbers, 9 and 5, 2 m x 1 m each, built out of neon fixtures. The installation was connected to the electricity from the series of electric lights on the pier near the lighthouse.

In the evening at 9 pm the sun would set and the lights on the pier switched on along with my light installation. In the morning at 5 am the sun would rise and the installation switched off along with the other lights on the pier. The on/off cycle of the lights on the pier was controlled by a light sensor installed on one of the electric light posts. I mounted the number 9 on the western side of the lighthouse facing the sun set and the number 5 towards the sea facing the sun rise. More here.
