HELL

Hell: 222 OSRAM OSTARĀ® LE UW E3B LEDs united in one piece of art. Each of these latest generation LEDs has a brightness of up to 1120 Lumen, which equals the light emitted by a powerful video projector. 222 of these LEDs produce 240.000 Lumen, a brightness usually sufficient to illuminate a football field. In our case, the light is concentrated on a panel none bigger than 240x140 cm. The 222 LEDs are arranged in such a way that they read the word "HELL" , which in German also means "bright", playing with this ambiguity in many different ways. Extensive electronics such as transformators, cooling and emergency switches are built into the panel that must be fed with 30.000 Watts of power supply. In an active, turned on state, the piece is too bright to be looked at, so that one is oblidged to wear welding shades when contemplating the artwork. At exhibitions, special care and safety measures must be taken in order to avoid damage to the eyes of spectators.
