Scientific electrical experiments are often conducted with circular or semicircular objects. The space between two poles is relevant not only because it discloses a void in the space between them, but also because it reveals hidden forces (as sparks between two electric poles).

The installation Wogender Bernstein consists of three wooden spheres,  each suspended from the ceiling at different heights by a copper wire. Three copper disks beneath form their respective antipoles. 

Wogender Bernstein is based on the phenomenon of static electricity and electric tension. Imagine sparks scintillating from the copper to the sphere. 

Bernstein is German for Amber. Electron is Greek for Amber.
