SEVENTEEN Generative light installation, 2013.

Seventeen appears like a living work that emits its own breath. Consisting of 17 white cushions made of Tyvek (a non-woven synthetic material), the installation hangs over the visitors heads. The undulating movement, combined with a subtle integrated light system, creates a kind of breathing, which seems to guide viewers as they move through the exhibition.
