A membrane of light marks Tahrir Square mirroring sky, earth and the vibrant political movement of Egypt today. Together with the Egyptian Museum it forms a center in Cairo and Egypt uniting past and present.
The membrane of light is like a roof sheltering Tahrir Square. The outdoor space becomes an indoor space. It is reflecting a new insight and understanding, power and longing, hoovering above Tahrir Square and creating a play of light and shadow on the ground.
The experience of walking in this space of light can create a feeling of community and unity.
Moving nano particles in the air of sand, dust and moisture will make the radiant membrane alive and vibrant. Light lines, light clouds and light turbulences will occur within the light mirror — mirroring a lively and vibrant political movement within an entity.
Stainless steel posts hold up a ring filled with xenon light beam systems emitting and reflecting white light.
