Instalation - Museum
Komorebi in the japanese culture refers to "The sunlight that filters through the leaves of the trees." Observation, reflection and reinterpretation of this concept (which we call Komorebi or just the natural light filtered through the leaves) is our starting point and inspiration. We designed this series of theatrical gobos texturized to achieve an effect of organic forms and generate a light carpet in the surrounding exterior corridors of the museum.
We were invited to make a temporary light installation as part of the gala dinner of MACO 2016 in the Tamayo Museum. Our proposal was based on generating a light mat in all circulations surrounding the museum. A lighting design to evoke a sense of spatial reinforcing the feeling of walking in the forest in the middle of the megalopolis that is Mexico City..
This project arose from the idea of merging two studios in a collaborative exercise Ghiju + Luca.
Ghiju + Luca also comes with the intention of strengthening the light practice through dialogue between visual perspectives, linking them into a single light experience. The study starts mainly from concern of the phenomenon of light and its simple but practical experimentation thoughtful concepts
