The world see the birth of approximately 355 000 children and the death of 145,990 people every day. The daily flow is yet imperceptible to the eye of a human. Lueurs is a symbolic representation of this life cycle, a meditative and poetic reflection on life and death. The appearance of 18,000 LEDs is programmed using an algorithm based on statistics of births and deaths worldwide. Moving lights in real time is a measure of the passing hours and pays tribute to the strength of the living.
This installation was shown consecutively in the 2008 Nuit Blanche in Paris, St Germain l'Auxerrois and Numeris Causa Gallery in Paris in 2009.
