Blu / Exhibition


iF concept design award 2012

iF concept design award 2012

‘Blu’ is an experimental project using light that is meant to evoke emotions and sensations to create two types of feelings, namely discomfort and hope. The tension between these two feelings is illustrated by the water element, which is not used in its physical form, but more for its psychological effects. When water is seen at different levels and not in the way sea water is usually seen, it becomes possible for visitors to ‘develop’ a story of emotions and to experience these emotions in the four stages of water and light as they move through the gallery.
