Using commercial fluorescent light tubing, Dan Flavin created light installations, making the spaces washed in vivid rainbow hues which became icons of Minimalism.
His circa 50 years old light installations are shining bright today, still looking very contemporary.
While outwardly simple and direct, these arrangements produce visual effects of surprising subtlety.
His choice of the material was motivated in part by a desire to break free from both Abstract Expressionism and Pop art by seizing on the anonymous and industrial nature of a familiar commercial product.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
From 28th of January until 24th of February was happening a sustainability-focused, Singapore-based spectacle i Light Marina Bay Festival. Following this years theme “Bridges of Time”, 32 sustainable light art installations and one multimedia show were presented.
I was so drawn into this type of visuals.
They make me wonder.
What is light without the shadow.
Is it a metaphor, feeling or maybe something not so abstract. Is it real.
Why do we strive for order, repetition, hierarchy.
What does the high contrast, rigidness and structure represent in our lives.
Do we feel safe there. Can we find something similar in nature.
Are we running away from it or is this something necessary in order to survive.
She bakes real loaves of bread, places LED lights inside, and applies a layer of resin over top.
