light swarm on the luminale 2018
pop-up manufactory for 5-dimensional light art
LIGHTING SWARM #LWW5
for the luminale, LichtKunstLabor TrafoLab is setting up a pop-up factory in sachsenhausen. components for a light sculpture will be produced using cameo laser cutters. colorful perspex acrylic panels and kraftplex are the raw materials for the LIGHTNING SWARM (#lww5). from the pentagons, spontaneously produced, visitors can create a growing, ever-changing light sculpture from the approx. 5,000 components. they thus become lighting swarm artists themselves, able to take a piece of the sculpture along with them as light monocle.
the artist franz betz also offers swarm art projects for team development: www.teamskulpturen.de/
