BlogY 960 LIGHTBULB INSTALLATION BY CARSTEN HÖLLER

Y 960 LIGHTBULB INSTALLATION BY CARSTEN HÖLLER

With 2012′s Venice Architecture Biennale upon us, Carsten Höller is a past artist featured at the event (2003) and around the world otherwise, with many different works; though there is one that stands out like a spark in the pan.

Titled “Y” for the shape that it is situated in on the floor, these 960 lightbulbs make up the structure. The bulbs are other materials: aluminium, wood, cables, electronic circuitry, light signs, and mirrors. The materials are pretty simple, but try to find your way around this thing! It may not look like much, but the nearly 1000 bulbs flicker and flash in different sequences, and the forks in the path become nearly invisible at times.

It may look like a carnival to some, but the linear simplicity of this is lovely to look at and, not to mention– inspiring in so many ways. For more inspiration head to Inthralld.
