Light sculpture Serendipity
For the new building of the Carmel College Salland in Raalte – designed by Atelier Pro – an extraordinary work of art has been realised inside the auditorium of the school by Studio Dennis Parren from Eindhoven.
The light sculpture, called ‘Serendipity’, consists of two parts that still form one whole. One part is a cuddly cloud, a medusa-like shape, built out of steel ribs and draped with a milky artificial skin. A filmy structure of rings, floating within the cloud, almost resembles its intestines. The entity is lit from inside by 4 led lights actuated by a computerized system that breathes life into the object with an endless play of colours and shadows. The other part is a placid, mathematically shaped object: a tetrahedron (a solid figure with four plane faces), built from tubes that spread white light from inside.
