photo Tane


With the art installation Tane, WERC presents the third member of the Lumo family. Tane is a self-organizing and complex art installation. Once installed Tane lives without further human interference in its environment and is able to survive its creators.

The interactive art installation Tane allows visitors to experience their environment in a new way. The installation consists of hundreds of individual Tane’s that stand on poles and can be recognized by their hexagonal black solar panels. The members of WERC see these Tane’s as small creatures.

The art installation Tane synchronizes with the rhythm of nature and is in direct contact with its environment. Tane makes noise during the day when it charges in the sun and glows at night when it wakes up. Due to the varying weather conditions, Tane has to deal with, the installation shows different light patterns in the evening, which from time to time lead to stunning light spectacles.
