Light Echoes

Aaron Koblin (US), Ben Tricklebank (US)

Traces of light are broadcast onto landscapes by a laser aboard a moving train. In Light Echoes, Aaron Koblin and Ben Tricklebank collapse time and space into images which document the historical pulses of data in the form of light reflecting off earth and matter. The project was included in Doug Aitken’s Station to Station project and later exhibited at the Barbican in London.
