ARTWORKS

NUTIDEN (HERE IN TIME)

Nutiden (here in time) is an urban artwork in the Danish city Horsens, situated in one of the city’s oldest and historically most interesting streets. The south-facing facade is located next to a neglected demolition plot, which after the artwork’s inauguration has sparked an interest of nearby residents to buy and maintain the plot as a green oasis and social gathering point for the whole neighbourhood.

The artwork consists of durable glass discs which use daylight and Earth’s movement to produce an evolving colour-changing light pattern on the facade, inspired by ancient sundials. While it may not be possible to tell the exact time from the artwork, it acts as a daily reminder of the simple beauty present in our everyday surroundings. The artwork is an example of light art functioning without electricity.

REFLEX

REFLEX is an example of passive light art - an artwork which reacts to both daylight, sunlight and surrounding artificial lights from cars, bikes and streetlights at night. The artwork uses prismatic elements to create a constant and subtle light play which requires rather than seeks the attention of passersby.

By making use of the natural elements of wind and light, REFLEX offered a curious addition to the newly renovated shore of Copenhagen’s old fish market with its two seemingly transparent net structures designed to underline the architecture of the space while drawing parallels to its history. Created for Copenhagen Light Festival, February 2021 in collaboration with Mariliis Kundla.

We have been requested to produce a new site-specific version of REFLEX for other light festivals, f.x. Blockheide Leuchtet in Austria. Send us a request if you are interested in something similar for your event.

SOLARIUM

SOLARIUM is developed to function as a central focal point in a large shopping mall, to offer a nice break from busy shopping and help visitors navigate through the mall. The artwork emphasises the architectural qualities of the space and makes use of the air’s natural flow to stay in constant movement.

At night the suspended circles are lit by 18 narrow beamed spotlights with white light, which creates a playful pattern of coloured reflections and refraction on both walls and floor. During daytime, the large-scale mobile creates a more unpredictable and varied pattern thanks to direct sunlight.

Solarium was commissioned by Copenhagen architectural studio Spacelab, in conjunction with their refurbishment of Kolding Storcenter. Careful consideration of construction methods, maintenance and flexibility towards other uses of the space during the year was part of the project planning from the very beginning. The artwork can be fully dismantled and recycled when it has served its time, without leaving any trace on the building.

TIMEGAZING

Timegazing is an object that presents a basic non-manmade phenomenon of splitting white light into its constituent parts as an example of refraction and dispersion. When extracted from their natural context, even the simplest physical phenomena tend to gain our interest.

Timegazing consists of white light and slowly rotating prisms. The movement of the prisms is controlled by analogue motors, while the varied rhythm and sequence of the lights are controlled digitally, thus creating an ever-changing light pattern that never repeats itself.

The artwork is developed in collaboration with Helsinki-based lighting company SunEffects and can be rented for light festivals and exhibitions by request to Noga.

Dimensions 87 x 87 x 15 cm.
