It was real delight to browse through Sebastian Hempel‘s oeuvre on his website. Here’re just 5 of his installations, but there’s much much more to discover.

Comfort #4

March 24th, 2011

Comfort #4 was a light installation by Lang & Baumann for the “Nuit Blanche” 2010 event in Paris. 9 inflated white tubes connected all windows of two floors of the Ecole Elementaire de Belleville in Paris, with each other. Each tube threaded several windows in a random order. The result was a huge chaotic knot in front of the facade. In the night the lights from the inside were shining through the translucent foil.

Of all the video projection on architecture projects out there, I still like Pablo Valbuena his best. One of his latest projects is called Quadratura, a site-specific installation presented at Matadero Madrid, Spain. Quadratura was the technique used in the baroque to extended architecture through trompe l’oeil and perspective constructions generated with paint or sculpture.

Movement of a Moment

February 11th, 2011

Movement of a Moment by Jesper Jonsson is a dynamic light concept that shows traces of time. You can say that it’s a clock or that it’s a light. The hands of the clock are in the back and cast a shadow. It’s probably not the easiest clock to read, nonetheless it’s a very nice idea.
