Where Does the Rainbow End?, 2018
Art project at Swissgrid’s head office in Aarau, Switzerland

While at Swissgrid the ‘real world’ of electricity is set at 50 Hertz, Loher’s ants run at a different frequency. The artist engages with the ecological concerns of our planet in her works, treating themes such endangered flora and fauna, climate change and the fundamentally unsustainable relationship between man and nature. With her work, Loher seeks to sensitise viewers to the beauty but also the vulnerability of nature. The video compositions created for Swissgrid use their magic to highlight modern concerns relating to energy, digital worlds, society and sustainability.
The Videoline, which appears as an artistic element in Loher’s works for the first time, was inspired by the architectural concept and the grid, which is depicted in multiple elements. It welcomes visitors under the overhang at the front, and flows through the entrance and market hall to the auditorium. It crosses the entire ground door in a staccato rhythm. Ants march like flowing current, ultimately metamorphosing into electrons, symbolising the fluidity of the medium of electricity.
Where does the rainbow end? is a metaphor for the active interaction of people, born of a synthesis of choreography, dance, costumes and poetry. For Swissgrid, this work of art, closely interwoven as it is with the architecture, is the artistic antithesis to the world of work.

The architecture of dreams creates unanswerable questions which can become the source of inspiration... Looking forward for the next year of creation, rainbow warriors!

The most important lesson to be learned in life is to love. Love is so strong that it is indestructible, and yet you can not touch it. You can know about it, you can feel it, and still you can't hold on it, because as soon as you try, it will lead you away. One can’t possess love; she is as free as the wind and goes wherever she wants. Go with her. Love is unity and wholeness. Love knows no limits, no barriers. Love is accompanied by freedom. Love releases and loosens all ties, it opens all doors and changes lives. Love is creation, beauty, harmony and oneness. Love works for everything, not against it. Love brings joy that sings and dances through life.

Gracias @kalinykalcheva what you sent me inspired me to write this text!
