light penetrates darkness

“On My Work with Zdenek Pesanek” is the memoir of Jaromir Fiala, Pesanek’s apprentice and aide who helped the artist build illuminated sculptures and light displays in Prague after WWI.

Fiala says of Pesanek: “I soon noticed that he spent little time in his workshop, because he travelled so much in search of technical infromation and of new contacts in order to finance his enterprise and support himself.”

of the many projects they build together none have survived – i am fascinated by the idea of the “kinetic light piano” – a piano for synesthetes to hear the color.
