Returning the Light

Returning The Light, 2010, Installation

Light Design, Restaurant Yokiyo, Amsterdam 2012.

In collaboration with House of Bouw

The installation refers to the original light, that of the sun, in which all colours are already hiding. Every lightbulb which produces white light uses the same principle merging all the colours together to form white once more. Artificial light is an attempt to hold on to the sun after it has gone.

In this case Red, Green and Blue light merges to create white light in the room and simultaneously the armature dissects it again creating coloured shadows. The components of the light become visible once more. What you see is similar to a technical drawing, the light creates an explanation of itself.

CRYSTAL-LINE light is a limited edition hand made steel, powder coated armatures in a choice of different shapes and colours, available for purchase.
