FAUST / Interactive installation

Goethe’s take on the Faustian legend could easily be almost anyone in modern society; we
are all imperfect, but the wings of desire are strong. The work “Faust”, designed to represent
the hat worn by Mephistopheles, uses surface-mount LEDs and rhythmic music to symbolize
the changes in emotional state Faust goes through in the course of the tale;starting as a man
of vision, he succumbs to the temptations of Mephistopheles, losing himself in the pursuit of
desire, constantly chasing his desires until his heart and spirit are broken, before realizing that
mankind is inherently imperfect, a realization that reawakens his spirit.
