Light materialization

After last week walking to the beach, I was crazy about the light materialization. Especially using the fog to materialize the light.

Then I recalled that I saw this kind of design before, Shanshui Experiment Complex by MAD the project I met at 2013 Bi-City Biennale of Urbanism\Architecture. Under the illumination, the fog showed a dramatic spectacle.

This morning when I google something again about mist, I found another interesting design about this field. The design studio called Kimchi and Chips has materialized 3-dimensional sculptures of light.

Kimchi and Chips materializes 3-dimensional sculptures of light with a fascination in illumination and its physical properties, Seoul-based art and design studio Kimchi and Chips have formed ‘light barrier’, materializing glowing rays as 3-dimensional geometries and shapes. Through the crossing of millions of calibrated beams, projection, scanning and convex mirrors, the installation creates floating graphic objects which animate through space and time. Volumetric compositions emerge as floating sculptures, hovering gracefully above the earth, then quickly metamorphose into dynamic moving images. The artists’ ‘study of digital light discusses a new visual mechanic, their installation, adding to the visual language of space and light.’ they describe ‘brush strokes become descriptive like code, detailing reality and allying light with canvas.’
