The work of German artist and stage designer rosalie is marked by the innovative transgression of limits. Her work has been shown in galleries and museums across Germany and has been featured in several international art fairs, including Art Basel, Art Cologne, and Art Frankfurt. In addition, rosalie has gained particular recognition with opera and theater audiences for her stage and costume designs. 

But in recent years rosalie has made use of new technologies and materials to create large, kinetic light sculptures, or as she calls them, “new universes of light.” rosalie Light-Art presents several of these light-art projects, revealing in steps how each piece was conceived and then constructed. Accompanying the 350 color illustrations are a DVD and essays by authors in physics and musicology exploring the relationships between science and art.
