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.
