Fiat Lux is a book as well as a video installation (moving image / color and sound). The book and subsequent installation have had 3 iterations — this product is the third and final iteration.
For the project “Take Apart a Car” by Olivier Oosterbaan and Victor Engbers, we wrote a screen play for a film that will never be made, at least in the traditional sense.
Victor and Oliver had gone out on a limb, done something they had no previous experience with (taking apart a car, quite literally). Inspired we decided to do the same, but reflecting on our daily observations of the 10 day project. This edition was made specially for the Tokyo Art Book Fair 2016.
The first official screening of the 38 minute version of the Fiat Lux film, in collaboration with sound artist Yama Yuki was during the Ghent Art Book Fair 2017
In 2018 a video installation of this text was presented in Tokyo, at Laforet Museum for the new media arts festival MeCA, with an additional installation of three dot matrix printers, accompanied by the score of sound artist Yama Yuki.
