FLAWLESS, A LIGHT INSTALLATION BASED ON CAPTURING EPHEMERALITY OF NATURE. 

 

As temperature change autumn turns winter, and elm trees shed

their leaves. Flawless recalls the passage of time through

seasons by transforming the perception of the landscape. 

A sublime light reflection of flying leaves moves as a poetry

above the water.

It evokes a positive message of happiness, an innate longing for

a more fundamental connection to the natural world..."

Through our fantasy we feel close to

our irreplaceable memories, imaginations and identities. 

The intensity giving by the  glowing installation in the

environment shows how important light is for human being. It

invites us to wander away for a moment and enhance

connection in time.

Photoluminescence proceSS

 

" Photosynthesis is a process used by plants and other organisms to convert light energy, normally from the sun, into chemical energy that can be later released to fuel the organisms' activities. "

 

 

 

We decided to interpreted the phenomena of photosynthesis with a magic chemistry concept called

photoluminescence. All the leaves are made of a mix of transparent resin and colorful phosphorescent

pigments. During the daytime,the pigments absorb energy from the sunlight, giving them a bright green glowing

color at night. In this way the installation is self-sufficient and self-illuminating.

 

 

THe ELM TREE Leaf

 

The leaf is the main focus of the installation. This ephemeral element of the tree is the principal witness of time. We

choose the leaf of the elegant Elm tree, present around all Amsterdam and explore his anatomy and get its

personality.

 

 

 

 

"The contrast between the glowing structure and the winter environment shows how important light is for human being. It shows the brightness of nature

as a source of beauty, oxygen and create a place where the spectator can be surprise and fantasize to a new perception of the landscape..."
