She asked people around her to contribute to the work by bringing her blue colours, paint and other materials. She then arranged all the different blue colours into a tableau of 7446 blocks of 3 cm to 7,5 cm. Size about 40 square meter.  
The wall painting illustrate nights that have passed and those still to come.

                                 Yann Novak, Blue Hour, Audio Visual Installation,2011-2012,

Blue.Hour explores the high contrast colors created in the landscape during “l’heure bleue,” the period of twilight each evening when there is neither full daylight nor complete darkness. Directly following the ‘Golden Hour,’ know for its diffused yet powerful light, the Blue Hour retains the diffusion but lacks the strong light source giving this period of the day an especially melancholic and meditative atmosphere.

Eric, thank you for putting this all together. It is a joy to see! All of the pieces here are fantastic. The Anna Hepler piece, 'The Great Haul', personally astounds me with it's beauty - and size - and materials!
