Halo is an optical phenomenon that occurs when light is reflected or refracted by ice crystals in the upper atmosphere. Inspired by natural occurrence and pro-duced by analogue mechanisms (pressed glass, foils, mirrors), the installation becomes an exploration of light as a medium unto itself, as a matter to be shaped. The kinetic forms of composition never rest on a unique image, nevertheless, they produce three-dimen-sional abstractions of light in space.
