Both Lazlo Moholy-Nagy, Mike Rijnierse and Willem Marijs transformed mechanical movement into visually powerful artworks. They created dynamic machines that play a colourful shadow game that changes the perception of space. The famous Licht-Raum Modulator (1930) by Moholy-Nagy has been transformed by Ambianti BV and the TU/e into a three-dimensional light projection which is on show on the science route on the terrain of the university. The original is displayed in the museum.
