Like a spacial oscilloscope the installation 40°Nord, 30°Süd reflects measured satellite values of the light emission on earth by night. The artificial lighting of human areas of settlements have degenerated the rhythm of day and night. Nevertheless the artificial lighting of our surroundings is going more and more unnoticed because of its everyday occurrence. The installation 40° Nord, 30° Süd falls back on satellite pictures of the earth's lighting by night and directly relates the brightening and dimming of the light bulbs to the global light emission. Thus the viewers have the possibility to experience the abstract measured values and changes of lighting conditions as in an accessible diagram.
