Choreographer Dalija Acin Thelander is creating mesmerizing and safe artistic environments for infants and adults. She is combining visual arts, dance, music and poetry to offer her youngest audience an experience that shouldn’t be exclusive to adults.

Fundamental for my motivation to create for the youngest audience is the perception of the child as equal to an adult, worthy of encountering arts in early years.

Her performances stimulate all senses and perception of babies and encouraging interaction, sparking their curiosity and triggering exploration.

My choreographic practice considers the synergy of choreography and installation art and their capacities for activation of the audience.

Hiroto Yoshizoe's Moon Reflection

Inspired with the relationship between the moon and the sun, Yoshizoe's mobile called 1.625m/s2 reflects the light of one simple bulb via mirror.

The moon is the most well-known indirect lighting known to humanity.
It receives light from the sun and gently shines above us, and is strongly associated with our feelings from ancient
times.
— Hiroto Yoshizoe
1.625_moonsun_2_photo-by-Shunsuke-Watanabe+(2).jpg

It consists of a series of suspended mirrors that reflect light to illuminate the surrounding space. If placed near window, it can also reflect light directly from the sun.

The mobile is called 1.625m/s2, which is the downwards acceleration caused by the moon's gravity on a falling body.

Just like the moon, this lighting equipment receives light from external environments and appears to shine gently to our eyes. The objects shine as they float within the air, as if they are free from gravity.

The Tapestry of Light

Royal Tapestry Factory in Madrid, founded in 1721, gets the makeover with innovative and fascinating new lighting.


Light & Studio designed lighting for this 4000 m2 property, inspired by the work of the ancient artisans who have gone through the workshops of the Royal Tapestry Factory of Madrid.

Its objective was the construction of a bridge between tradition and innovation, between the old and the new, a bridge that unites this factory working since 1721 and the coworking space for innovation companies that has been created between its walls, the Loom House.

The design is based on methacrylate tubes installed at different heights to create those crosses that resemble textile patterns. More than 200m of digital LED strips controlled point by point, run through these tubes making different scenes and tours, led by light.

It has been possible thanks to 3 controllers of 64 universes each, connected to a software made to measure for the project, images are launched in real time, generating different atmospheres.

The programming is integrated in a Dali system that allows to handle, through a touch screen, both the digital lighting and the rest of the lighting in the room. This system also allows adjusting the lighting to natural light that enters through the windows throughout the day to respect our biorhythms.

‘Limbus Greenframe’ by Kauppi & Kauppi

Wouldn’t be great to work in the middle of a dense mini-jungle or to display your favorite plants in a different way? Swedish studio kauppi & kauppi brings us "Limbus Greenframe” project which is a minimalist wooden frame that celebrates potted plants and greenery.

I wanted to investigate how much a floor screen could be simplified, when everything except the naked elegant wood frame was reduced, I became interested in seeing what it could be filled with. I often long for the forest and have a beautiful norfolk pine at my desk, which always makes me happy
— Johan Kauppi
Perhaps my plants could fit in the frame? To make plants grow and prosper, light is needed. Glimakra of Sweden has great knowledge of wood production and did a great job when managed to integrate the lighting in the top of the frame and to conceal the technology in the frame itself. The result is a stripped and restrained furniture in solid wood, a mixture of a room divider, green furniture and light fixture.

The Movement of Air

Two brilliant french artists Adrien M / Claire B are creating dream-like scenography where dancers and light are performing choreography together. The performers are walking on the thin line between reality and virtual reality, where no rules of physics are applicable.

Other projects, like Pixel, are also showing their crazy skills to create light animation that interacts with dancers, seamlessly making the scene and performers as one.

Their latest viral project, Acqua Alta unfolds three times: a show mixing body and images; a book in pop-up to watch in augmented reality; an experience for virtual reality helmet.

Lux Aeterna - Data Enabled Light Sculpture

FPJPN4AJDEUHSGX.LARGE.jpg

Lux Aeterna is a data enabled light sculpture. The piece uses the data of planet Mars’s topography and turns it into a voxel landscape as a base to explore the movement in space. The path the Curiosity rover on the surface of Mars is directly translated into the motion of the LEDs, and the brightnes…
