These optical light installations are called ‘Moving Images’. Basic shapes, rhythms and movements that he finds in nature inspire Michael Bom in making these machines. With the images displayed by these machines and the use of light he lets us experience his observations in a unfamiliar way. These works have connections in the tradition of abstract art.
His kinetic optical installation ‘Moving Images II’ was nominated in 2018 for the 5th International André Evard-Art Award by the Kunsthalle Messmer in Germany.
