Light is the primary element in the artistic practice of Danish artist Astrid Myntekær. She uses light to transform space visually and architecturally through installations and sculptural elements. Light determines not only the way we see the world but also how we feel it. Light creates moods that colour our way through the world. In continuance of the Danish light pioneer, Thomas Wilfred (1889 - 1968), who developed the genre "clavilux" - light played with tones – Astrid Myntekær is also working with musical orchestrating and composing light. As an alchemist she is constantly testing, challenging and refining materials and technologies in new contexts and configurations.
