Ann Veronica Janssens uses devices such as light, artificial fog, colour projections, mirrors, reflective materials and sound in order to push human perception to its limits. She made her first indoor haze installations in the late 1990s, constructing enclosed spaces filled with vapour coloured by light. Her wall-mounted work Rose, made in 2007, combines artificial fog with beams of light. The haze makes the intersecting beams visible, revealing a luminous star in which light appears to solidify. Rose appeared in the Hayward Gallery’s 2013 exhibition Light Show.
