A cloud of communication

Ruth and Erez Kikin-Gil‘s People+ is a light constellation that reacts to mobile activities and exposes flows of communication in its surroundings.


A cloud of human figures and + sign is hanging from the ceiling, and reacts to mobile phone activities in its vicinity. With every phone call or SMS, the cloud comes alive with streams of light flowing between the objects. The objects glow and dim; a human figure, a plus sign, another human figure, another plus sign, etc.

The installation, created for the Fjord’s office space, exposes flows of communication, and stresses the fact that mobile communication expands the boundaries of a person and augments the distances one can reach.
