Duel is a kinetic light installation composed of rotating disks with a light side and a dark side.  Observing the “idea of conflict acting as a driving force” the disks rotate to “duel” with the light on the opposing side, creating a constant and shifting motion of light and shadow. It is composed of 16 motorized light discs on a 30 meter fixed structure.

What is unclear in the documentation is whether the movement is a specific choreographed order of motion, or if the if the elements react to/sense one another and base their motion off that. I suspect choreography, and in this case adding a sensing/reactive element is a something that think would further push this piece both in its function and its idea conceptually, allowing for elements of surprise as well as a possible interactive audience intervention.
