Lighting swarm #lww5

Pop-up Factory for 5-dimensional Light Art

A project of Franz Betz

For the Luminale, the LichtKunstLabor TrafoLab (LightArtLab) is setting up a Pop-Up Factory in Sachsenhausen’s Markt im Hof (Market Courtyard).

Cameo laser cutters are used to produce components for a light sculpture, the LIGHTNING SWARM (lww5). Colorful acrylic sheets of Perspex® are the raw material for the production of transparent pentagons. Kraftplex® serves as canvas for individual bridges. From the pentagons and bridges thus produced, Luminale visitors can compose a growing, ever-changing, light sculpture from the estimated 5,000 components.  They thus become swarm artists themselves, and can take a sculpted piece along with them as light monocle. The light sculpture lww5 thereby continually grows, beyond the Markt im Hof - both actually and virtually,

Inspiration especially for Instagrammers throughout Frankfurt and Offenbach to snap phots with the light components in the pop-up factory, and also, whenever possible, with individualized components.

For the opening, the Markt im Hof will be provide catering and sufficient seating.
