trafolab at luminale 2018 #lww5


pop-up-manufactory for 5-dimensional light art
a project by franz betz
at luminale, the light art laboratory trafolab founds a pop-up manufactory in markt im hof, sachsenhausen. using cameo laser cutters, components are produced for a light sculpture, the LIGHT SWARM ART WORK (lww5). coloured acrylic sheets made of Perspex® are the basic material for transparent pentagons. Kraftplex® serves as a painting base of individual connecting
bridges. the visitors create a growing, changing light sculpture during the luminale from these 5,000 components (pentagons and bridges). they become swarm artists who can take a piece of sculpture with them as a monocle of light. the light sculpture lww5 is continuously growing outside the market in the courtyard in a completely real and virtual way.

particularly instagramers are being encouraged to take photos of the lighting components in the pop-up manufactory and throughout frankfurt and offenbach, if possible also with individualised components.
