WHEN MATERIAL FLIRTS WITH KINETIC ART

3D Wall, Stand Renault, Copenhague (Denmark) - Danpalon® clear - Light Designer : Gilbert Moity (FR)

Location: a narrow and elongated bar in Copenhagen. The sponsor: Renault, seeking futuristic entertainment as part of the introduction of an electric vehicle. Creator: Gilbert Moity, lighting engineer. The result: the 3D Wall, a set of LCD screens, 15 metres long and 3 metres high, playing a video that is absorbed,  transformed and then recreated by the Danpalon® wall opposite.

 mur 1“The idea is to use light as a fairly abstract material: shapes, lines, impressions. This is not an ordinary video,” explains Gilbert Moity.” Right in the front, the Danpalon® forms a tangible substance, a solid wall.

 

  

Its beehive-like structure diffracts the light. That creates an impression that the lines of light are fleeting, submerging and disappearing in the depths of the material. The video screen disappears and, whereas touching the surface of the  Danpalon® wall gives no idea of the nature of what one sees.”

“I have worked with the graphic artist Xavier Gruchet on this video made of abstractions: flowing lines, layers of colours, sequences we have tested on the material for a one-hour video playing randomly,“ continues Gilbert Moity, “with even more surprises at the time of streaming.

When the computer creates mixtures we had not anticipated. But one thing is certain – were it not for the Danpalon® in the front, it would be neither beautiful.
