Pairidaeza
Light installation, 2018
Neonflex, PVC, steel, cable, power supply
200x30x10 cm











The work Pairidaeza was created as part of an exhibition project in Tehran. It is a light installation referring to the Persian language and its influence on the German word "Paradies". Characterizing an enclosed space, the Old Persian word pairidaeza found its expression in Indo-European probably due to the beauty of Persian gardens. Inspired by this etymological history and the omnipresence of light in the streets of Tehran, Miriam Hamann realized an installation showing the word Paradies as bright lettering. Its readability, however, remains partial, inviting the visitors to consciously and actively move around the installation.
