LOST MATTER

WHO: Jeppe Holm & Irene Liut
WHERE: Matrikel 1. Gammel Strand 26-28, 1202 København

ABOUT THE LIGHT WORK
As humans we are so much more than our physical bodies and what we are able to perceive with our five senses. We are surrounded by an aura of subtile vibrant fine particles, that radiates colors. We all know how a person’s energy can linger in a room long after they have left. And how, when a person dies, in some way some part of them stays with us after they are gone. We want to depict the intangible phenomenon of the energetic imprint we as humans leave behind.

ABOUT THE ARTIST
Jeppe and Irene are studying lighting design together at Aalborg University. Irene is originally from northern Italy and she moved to Denmark to study Art and Technology, Jeppe is an electrical engineer that worked with lights in many different forms. They share a passion for visual arts and lasers, which brought them together to work in this and other projects.

WHERE: Matrikel 1. Gammel Strand 26-28, 1202 København

ABOUT THE LIGHT WORK
This light piece is a study in movement, animation, and light as a material, with soft sub-aquatic movements as inspiration. It brings the movements of seagrass to the cityscape in the form of a dynamic light installation, in a frame-by-frame animation. As the frames change, it gives an impression of dynamic movement in an image that brings citylights and nature together.

#3 THE WATERCOLOR WINDOW

THE WATERCOLOR WINDOW

WHO: Nikolaj Dinesen & Senja Ruohonen
WHERE: Matrikel 1. Gammel Strand 26-28, 1202 København

ABOUT THE LIGHT WORK
The Watercolor Window is a look into a futuristic organic nature where colors blend together in a flowing movement shifting between abstract paintings and clearer patterns resembling elements in nature. Inspired by the sci-fi movie Annihilation it captures the idea of stretching and distorting nature, but with the combination of the organic water movement which watercolors perform as the artist produces the watercolor painting. The installation shifts between offering both a meditational space with slow progressions in movement, and a more storybased narrative. We hope you will enjoy the Watercolor Window as much as we did creating it.

#6 BIOLUMINESCENCE

BIOLUMINESCENCE

WHO: Antti Heikka & Karolina Palica
WHERE: Matrikel 1. Gammel Strand 26-28, 1202 København

ABOUT THE LIGHT WORK
Bioluminescence is the emission of light by a living organism. It occurs widely among marine organisms as well as among insects, bacteria, and fungi [1]. It has inspired mankind since the earliest times as ancient Chinese and Japanese legends spoke about mysterious lights in the forests made by dragons and gods and, thanks to Aristotle, the bioluminescence of the ocean was referred to as ‘burning of the sea’ [2].

The project explores the concept and investigates the fairy-tale scenographic possibilities of bioluminescence.

The space is dynamic and changes according to the point of view through which it is observed, giving us the possibility to plunge into and explore it. Where is the boundary of reality? The Dimension Beyond challenges our perception and leads us to question it.

#8 CAPTURE: AURORA

CAPTURE: AURORA

WHO: Panagiotis Stamidis & Filipe Almeida
WHERE: Matrikel 1. Gammel Strand 26-28, 1202 København

ABOUT THE LIGHT WORK
Aurora is a phenomenon that people are amazed by its majesty. The inspiration for the installation comes from the idea of “controlling” this phenomenon. In an analogue perspective, using light and a holographic paper, Aurora is captured on a piece of canvas. Every part of the installation is visible so someone can explore, from different angles, the effect made by light and materials.

ABOUT THE ARTIST
Panagiotis Stamidis
I am 26 years old from Thessaloniki, Greece. My desire for the general field of architecture started when I was working as a sales assistant in a clothes company through decoration. As my bachelor is in accounting, I decided to change my professional career just last year by studying Interior Design at AKTO college in Thessaloniki Greece. Through that decision, I had the opportunity to get to know lighting design that led me to attend the master of Lighting Design at Aalborg University, Copenhagen. I might not have much experience, but I do have much inspiration and enthusiasm for Lighting Design from an architectural and artistic perspective.

Filipe Almeida was born in Lisbon, Portugal and recently moved to Denmark to attend a Master’s in Lighting Design at the AAU University in Copenhagen. For the past 10 years has been working as an architect and an artist. It was during his early teenage years that he started obsessively exploring analog photography and the fascination of the dark room. It was during those years that the awareness of light grew and led to a steady research and exploration of its qualities and emotions through architecture and artistic expression.

One head. Our consciousness.
We as humans have always been connected not only through the elements of nature that we can see but also the unseen. But what is the unseen? How can we perceive the unseen?
