At Frieze London 2021, Hollander revealed her work which is composed of recycled LED headlights from the BMW Group Recycling and Dismantling Centre. Following an intense dialogue with the organisation’s sustainability department and investigation into the automatic adaptive system of BMW headlights, Hollander developed a networked map choreographed by the sunsets and sunrises across the globe.
Fascinated by the responsive nature of headlight technology that reacts to a number of factors, such as movement, light and weather conditions, Hollander has synced each headlight to a different time zone, creating a live global clock. In Hollander’s work our apparently erratic individual actions and everyday technologies synchronically align, becoming a collective, and in this case cascading-dance. The installation is accompanied by an original score by composer Celia Hollander.
