 The media installation Noctilucent aims at re-mediating pakistani truck art. A burnt out mini-bus located on the premises of the biennale in Karachi serves as both an artefact and a canvas. By using mulitcoloured LED's to up-cycle the bus Noctilucent creates patterns that are luminous only at night or at twilight.  The media installation Noctilucent aims at re-mediating pakistani truck art.

 During the day Noctilucent showcases black and white patterns, because the mulitcoloured LED's, which resemble the ice-crystals noctilucent clouds are made of, shine only from dust to dawn. Thus Noctilucent uses re-medation as a translucent process that does not want to efface the old medium nor does it want to efface itself entirely. By using strong contrasts for day-or-night-display  Noctilucent emphasizes the difference between the old medium and the new one rather than erase it.  During the day Noctilucent showcases black and white patterns, because the mulitcoloured LED's, which resemble the ice-crystals noctilucent clouds are made of, shine only from dust to dawn.
