LuxuryLogico, a collaborative design group of two Taiwanese design groups; Luxury Brothers, and Logico Studios, have composed, orchestrated and choreographed one of the most mesmerizing and delightful art works I have yet encountered.
Scripting was initially created in conjunction with a famous Taiwanese contemporary dancer for interaction. Both the installation and the dancers moved besides, along, beneath and above each other, forming a complex duet. Here there is only the light to be viewed.
Utilising T5 fluorescent and a complex kinetic control system (not the dimming type we’re use too), LuxuryLogica has created a ballet of light in rhythm with hypnotic classical music. The lights rise and fall, and modulate from side to side in a simple graceful dance.
LuxuryLogica’s other artwork on show comprises of over 100 LED lamps housed within a myriad of discarded and donated shades. Their arrangement is in a circle creating a pulsating sun, controlled by an intricate Dali control system. Each lamp has its own entity and purpose, but together they all work in harmony as one, creating a myriad of illuminated graphics.
Their works celebrate unity, of individual beings /entities being brought together, familiar objects taking on new nuances and identities, introducing us to the vernacular in unexpected and surprising ways. There’s an ephemeral nature to their interventions, and a resonating harmony to connect all things on a universal level….and they have achieved this through the use of light…
