PANTA RHEI


WATER LIGHT FESTIVAL BRIXEN,
St. Erhard,
Brixen, IT

According to Heraklit's theory of flux, the primary experience of the world is a perpetual change of substance and form.
WHOEVER GETS INTO THE SAME RIVER, OTHER AND OTHER WATER FLOWS TO HIM.
YOU CANNOT STEP INTO THE SAME RIVER TWICE.
Being is an eternal becoming and changing. Flowing water is a metaphor for this.
In the midst of the stream of festival visitors, river words and quotations wash around the fa├žade of St. Erhard's, transforming the static architecture into a moving sign with typographic means:
But behind and at the same time in the ceaseless flow stands unity: unity in multiplicity and multiplicity in unity.
