Anno Tropico by Formafantasma
Champions of appropriated material, Amsterdam-based duo Formafantasma explore the immaterial with a series of light experiments. Presented at Milan’s Peep-Hole Contemporary Art Center – the prefect architectural backdrop – the Anno Tropico exhibition (till 19 March) permutates into different techniques and application; a series of site and time specific refractions. The designers seek to interplay artificial and innate light as a new harmony. From day to night, viewers – ushered in with a scientifically-composed soundtrack – experience these illuminations and their anchored forms from different perspectives. The mathematics of nature are expressed in astronomically-inspired rings.Dichroic glass, optical lenses and a parabolic mirror, assembled with industrial materials like bricks and iron rods, shape the light, generating reflections and shadows in the space.
