The installation Lux consists of 5 mirror-balls, each equipped with a loud speaker, which hang from the ceiling of the exhibition room. Through a web-cam, the exhibition is transmitted to the Lux homepage and is completed by another 5 mirror-balls shown there. The mirror-ball being nothing but a visual accessory at discotheques, in connection with Lux gains supplementary functions through its use as an online DJ-interface.

The Lux homepage allows users to transmit sounds and songs to the mirror-balls. Tracks saved onto the webcam-mirror-ball can also be chosen by the exhibition's visitors. They have to switch on the mirror-ball by pulling a string at the ball's bottom: as soon as the track has been activated, the mirror-ball rotates until the track is over. Each mirror-ball can save up to 10 songs.
