The magic field of different coloured gradients

“Light is something we all think we understand. It can be white, it can be coloured, it is bright, can be reflected and casts shadows. With ‘Gradient’ we wanted to show how colours blend,” explains Dennis Parren.

For the Biennale Internationale Design Saint-Etienne 2015 Studio Dennis Parren created three lighting installations for the Musée de la Mine in St. Etienne in central France.

The Gradients installation comprised projecting coloured light and white light at different angles onto a surface of protruding white polystyrene shapes.

The LEDs were slowly rotated so different overlaps of the RGB combinations were created on the surfaces, causing an effect that made the colours appear to flow across the spiky carpet.

A basically simple principle, but with enormous effect!
Light can inspire, light can change, it can toy with our perception and, above all, create atmosphere. Light can do a lot more than you think…
