The work Aloop opens up a space for the sensual perception of a phenomenon that is always and everywhere present, but cannot be directly perceived without technical mediation: radioactive background radiation.

In a contemplative aesthetic and formally minimal way the work offers an easy access to an inherently difficult and ambivalent topic. It translates the detection of radioactive decay processes into ephemeral, moving light patterns by drawing a luminous torus of waves decaying into individual dots of light into the dark space and temporarily onto the viewer's retina.
