A light sculpture that captures the poetry of the city night lights. When looking through your eyelashes at night, all light sources in the cityscape turn into perfect ellipsis. Ellipsis that change form as the source of their light are moving through the urban grid. Due to cars, bikes, boats and metros, that move in between the high rises and street lanterns that

are solid standing in the urban grid, an overlapping play of colours and endless colour combinations appear in front of your eyes. This light installation is a poetic interpretation of the lights we use in the city at night and the projections they drop.
