invisibility project – yap constructo competition 2017

Invisibility is a material surface structured to create
experiences with light.
The magic of the Invisibility project resides in its simple
light conductive surface that deviates light from one side
to another of a given space or structure, this results in a
colorful and lighted dot matrix material that turns images
and into an architectural coating material. The light from
each dot is deviated individually through an optic conductive
material such a acrylic poly methyl methacrylate (pmma).
This allow infinite configurations depending on the light
of the two separate sides of any given space. This concept
can be used to bring light to dark places but also use light
as a coating material in bright exteriors, landscapes and
public spaces.

When the light hits one side of the surface, the deformed
acrylic bars can create soft spaces where the light goes
through generating patterns of transparent lines and at
the same time the interior becomes invisible to the exterior
on both sides.
The design creates a very particular dimension where the
visitors of the installation become invisible to the exterior
yet allowing the light go through their bodies, poetically
speaking. Instead of being inside a black hole this becomes
a light hole or white hole as we might define it. By creating
these two contrasted situations the experiences can present
themselves as a magical divider of spaces and create new
ones as you walk through the interior and exterior.

The world we live and the environment we are constantly
intervening is often taken for granted, by creating these
light experiences we aim to reflect the landscape and
surroundings into an architectural piece, putting in
evidence how small we are when confronted to nature
and earth temporary and spatially speaking. In daylight
the surfaces are activated by sunlight, while during the
night it can take light from digital devices to show that
there are more sides to any story, all about perception
using artificial light and projections light can be dynamic
and become a platform to express other technological
questions regarding the information overload and
stressed communication age we are constantly
submerged into.
