A motor sensor cinema effect. This installation makes heavy use of the instance when a proximity sensor is constantly on the brink of getting out of range. A cinematic effect ist triggered by the continous voltage drops and irregularities. Flickering and variations of movement let shadow dervishes appear on the translucent screen, while rotation and chiming float in the air.
