Overview

Materials: Optic fiber, light monitors
Size: 14 x 2 meter
Organization: NRGII

Light is conducted though optical fibers. The weaving is very slowly changing colour.

Goals

Krogh’s starting point is often her assessment of the natural light illuminating the space she’ll work in, which she examines to gauge its intensity, color spectrum and the shadows that form as it moves. Krogh balances these factors against the practicalities outlined in the project brief, then brings them together to charge the space with energy and emotion, which makes the architecture come alive.

Process

A collaboration between Astrid Krogh and NRGI, Århus, Denmark
