For the Biennale Internationale Design Saint-Etienne 2015 we created several light installations and sculptures for the Musée de la Mine in St. Etienne, to show how light can be controlled to create beautiful patterns that tell us the story of light, colours, shadows and reflection.
Colours are seen when light reflects. With ‘Reflections’ our goal was to show how light reflects by trapping it inside different shapes. Catching the light and forcing it into a shape amplifies the reflection as it has nowhere to go. This results in a magical spectacle of bright colourful, almost fluorescent, light.
For ‘Reflections’ we used exactly the same light set-up as with ‘Gradients’, only now having a completely different result, giving us yet another insight into the mystery of light and colour.
