Heliosphereis a light installation that transforms solar wind activity into an artificial Aurora. Real time data on solar wind activity and the strength of the interplanetary magnetic field generate a dynamic light composition on water vapour screens. The installation connects the visitor to the cosmic weather in a sensorial way, by creating a man-made “natural” phenomena.
