Traces of light are broadcast onto landscapes by a moving laser aboard a train. In Light Echoes, we collapse time and space into images which document the historical pulses of data in the form of light reflecting off earth and matter.
This is the first expression of an ongoing series.

MegaFaces is a kinetic facade conceived by Asif Khan and engineered by iart. It can transform in three dimensions to recreate the faces of visitors to Khan’s pavilion, a 2,000 m2 cube situated in the Olympic Park in Sochi during the 2014 Olympic Games. This video was taken during commissioning, shortly before the opening of the pavilion on 7 February 2014. The project was commissioned by MegaFon. Music: Arthur Carabott
