With a background in experimental film and video art in the 1980s, Cerith Wyn Evans has primarily worked since the 1990s with spectacular installations where a number of media such as sculpture, photography, film, text, light and sound form natural elements. At Bergen Kunsthall Evans created a massive integrated installation which filled all four exhibition halls. Perhaps most striking was the row of specially constructed columns, built with a large number of fluorescent tubes where old-fashioned filament technology emitting, and the sound from several transparent flute sculptures that filled the halls with sound, providing a total and immersive experience. Aiming to mirror this, the catalogue itself is based around central concepts of light vs. dark, using subtle techniques like gradually darkening the background colour from white to black as the reader moves through the volume.
