EX UNDA (lat. out of the wave) deals with the natural experience of the wave as a source of inspiration.

Several glass bowls, suspended from the ceiling and filled with water, move up and down motor-operated. They imitate the movements of a water surface. By illuminating the shells from above, various light reflections are created on the floor.
Due to the vibration and movement of the shells, waves are generated on the water surface. Their illumination makes the physical phenomenon of interference in the form of varying structures on the ground surface visible.

Five modules (consisting of a water bowl and their lighting) are hung next to each other on a length of 5 meters. They are moved up and down over a height of 3 meters. The motors are located in a CANopen network, which is controlled by a central script.
