KINETIC LIGHT SCULPTURE BY MICHAEL CANDY

Big Dipper, the kinetic light sculpture, created by an Australia-based artist Michael Candy has a plywood and metal body with 18 fluorescent tubes that emanate light onto the surrounding architecture as they move around the central helix mechanism. Completed over the course of one month, the piece was designed, built and assembled in India as part of the Kochi AIR residency program.

Light Barrier by Kimchi and Chips

Kimchi and Chips, art and design studio based in Seoul, South Korea, have created the installation called Light Barrier, which materializes truly volumetric projections. The work is produced by crossing millions of calibrated beams, projections and convex mirrors. The compositions emerge as floating sculptures which change into dynamic moving images. Artists’ study of digital light is adding to the visual language of space and light, they say ‘brush strokes become descriptive like code, detailing reality and allying light with canvas.’

Light Barrier was co-commissioned by FutureEverything and the British Council Russia. It premiered at New Media Night Festival, Nikola-Lenivets 4–6 June 2014.

Capturing Resonance

“Capturing Resonance” by sculptor Soo Sunny Park and composer Spencer Topel.

Featured at deCordova Museum, the colourful and iridescent installation feels like a work of exquisite glass. In fact, Park created the undulating textile by inserting thousands of acrylic squares into chain link fencing. As “Capturing Resonance” was created in a window-filled space, different lighting makes the piece a constantly evolving palette of colour, shadows and reflection. The installation also features an audio element as composer Spencer Topel created an dreamy, elegant composition that is activated by motion sensors so the sound is ever-changing and layered like its iridescent muse. “Capturing Resonance” showcases that any material, no matter how industrial or mundane it may seem, can become a gorgeous piece of art.

Paper Sculpture

Yuko Takada Keller started as a student graduated in weaving and the flow of her life inspired her to experiment tracing paper. Impressed with its properties and translucent nature, she started exploring different ways of using it. Her successful installations include a chandlier for Bvlgari.  This collection is a part of her molecule inspired work.
