2011. Light Object. In collaboration with Elena Burggraf
Finalist ‘Gewebtes Licht’, ZKM Karlsruhe
A light transmitting fabric and LEDs merge to create a unique surface articulation. Layering, overlapping and draping leads to various gradients of density. The material forms tubes that enclose the light source, giving the whole structure support at the same time. Light is channeled along the object according to the direction of the fibre and follows the curvature of the sculpture. Smoothly pulsing light only illuminates parts of it until the global shape is finally revealed to the eye.
