The ‘Political Light’ uses dichroic glass to visualize a momentary political mood on twitter with a focus on German politics. In the light installation, a blue spot moves 1° degree to the right or left away from the orange center depending on the number of tweets containing the word ‘AfD’ (Germany’s far-right party) versus ‘die Linke’ (the far-left party).

The instrument is played data addressing current notions towards political radical positions and ideologies enhanced by social platforms.
