“You constitute the object that you look at by looking at it”
Photon Vortex is a light object shaped by persistence of vision. The positive afterimage of the human eye materializes the path of a moving light source. When this kinetic object spins fast enough the light appears to be made of static floating circles. Together with the focal glow against the wall the led circles create an intangible composition of different layers of light.

The work of Arnout Meijer focuses on the use of optical physics and the vibrance of light. He recently graduated at the Design Academy Eindhoven with two projects, both find their origin in the search for new light experiences. In his Rotterdam based studio he works on a combination of industry collaborations and self initiated projects.
