A huge bundle of irregularly arranged fluorescent and LED tubes rises above the viewer, supported by a frame: It resembles a column of light made of rods of different brightness and protruding diagonally into the room. Individual lights are attached to the scaffolding. At the height of the viewer, the work Extension - Model 1: 1 is flanked on both sides of the room by reflective metal foils. The light is controlled with an endless loop: after all the fluorescent tubes have turned on and off again, the light travels in the vertical LED tubes from bottom to top several times, while passages edited by molitor & kuzmin from an interview by John Cage can be heard.
