Balancing simple principles of physics it took careful experimentation to transform the initial concept image into reality.
As part of the Future Primitives Project for this week’s Biennale Interieur 2012 in Belgium, the deceptively simple installation of bent light archways uses Fresnel lenses to refract the rays of light through a single focal point.
Cleverly, this doesn’t just alter the direction of the beam of light, it bends it hyperbolically to create the mysterious arches.
The installation venue was deliberately chosen as a space with strong brick walls and exposed beams to further enhance the notion of “inscribing one architectural space within another”. The light forms something almost tangible, must be quite a surreal sensation to walk through it.
Amazing stuff. More info on the Troika site.
