LODZ DESIGN FESTIVAL

In 2012 we've prepared three installations for Lodz Design Festival: a shadow tapestry Polish gestures, an interactive installation Sometimes right, and a shadow fence Polska gola!

 

POLISH GESTURES

 

Polish gestures is a tapestry based on shadow casting panels, made of 100% virgin wool.

It has been manufactured by Braun Collection

(dimensions: 5m x 3m, resolution: 81px x 48px)

SOMETIMES RIGHT

 

Sometimes right is an object based on shadow casting panels, made of water-cut forex with hand-assembled elements (dimensions: 252cm x 54cm, resolution: 130px x 25px). Under directed illumination Sometimes right displays words, which... sometimes are right, depending on direction of light and position of the object. 

 

 

 
 
 

POLSKA GOLA!

 

Polska gola! is an example of a "shadow fence". On a sunny day a shadow fence casts dynamic shadows on the ground in front of it, depending on the time of the day.  It is made of laser-cut metal sheet with manually bent elements, and displays via shadow the "Coca-Cola" logo in the morning, and a popular Polish soccer-cheering phrase "Polska gola!" in the afternoon. It has been manufactured by Zieta.

(dimensions: 280cm x 120cm, resolution: 86px x 50px).
