Cosmic Revelation

Tim Otto Roth & KASCADE Experiment (DE)

Honorary Mention Hybrid Art

“Cosmic Revelation” lets you experience science up-close-and-personal. A four-hectare light installation makes visible the energies of the cosmic radiation emanating from the depths of the universe and constantly raining down upon our planet. One or two times per second, these cosmic forces are unleashed in 16 specially designed lightning sculptures that are linked up to the Karlsruhe (Germany) Research Center’s KASCADE detector field.

As a new form of land art, this blitz-studded terrain is not only an open-air physics demonstration; it also illustrates how the atmosphere acts as a buffer zone and protective layer, and is an essential precondition for the existence of life on Earth.
