  • NOITEM
    lichtervelde BELGIUM

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Nick ERVINCK: NOITEM is one of my most recent works. These works will be respresented as huge lightboxes. As a Rorsach-stain, these works have no single-point perspective and can be interpreted in different ways. For this series I don’t use my trademark color yellow but push the boundaries with very poetic and mysterious results. Desperately we try to search for forms we recognize but these creations don’t seem to fit in any category. Floating in an infinite space, the serie is like a shadow of the past. You can compare it in a way to “nachbilder” or “afterimages”: optical illusions we see for the short moment after we looked directly into the sun.

    Critic: Andrew SAUNDERS.

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Graham BILLINGS: “Normative Fluidity” is a museum extension that explores the process of transposition between a series of light studies, diagrammatic implications of the “affect,” and their resultant three-dimensional forms and spaces. Diffraction of light through water is known as caustics; a process that was coupled with a camera obscura during my initial research.

  • Color Code
    los angeles CALIFORNIA

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    farnoosh RAFAIE: Color Code provides the opportunity for the individual to generate trigger and sequential memory through the cyclical display of the woven light fixture. As a color is chosen through the control panel, the activated pump runs the initial dye through the transparent tubing. When a sequence is made complete, the secondary color follows, prompting the primary dye to return back to the sourced supply.

  • Succulent Hispid
    los angeles CALIFORNIA

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    harlen MILLER, francesco VALENTE-GORJUP, & jordon GEARHART: Succulent plants, also known as succulents or fat plants, are water-retaining plants adapted to arid climate or soil conditions. Succulent plants store water in their leaves, stems and/or roots. The storage of water often gives succulent plants a more swollen or fleshy appearance than other plants, also known as succulence. In addition to succulence, succulent plants variously have other water-saving features. The Succulant Hyspid creates an unexpected relationship between the observer and the lighting.

  • Seltanica
    new york NEW YORK

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    cmmnwlth (zoe COOMBES & david BOIRA): The Seltanica is a production light we originally developed for Wright Auction and Volume Gallery of Chicago. It appeared in their fall contemporary exhibit, ‘Truth in Form, Reason For Being’. It is a suspension lamp, cast in white Gypsum. Modeled via software generally used for the replication of animal skins and other such intricate surfaces, the piece is ultimately cast into a material that has over 5,000 years of use- White Gypsum. This attempt to relate the contemporary to the historical is common to most of our work.

  • Sporadic Luminance
    los angeles CALIFORNIA

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    gary MARTINEZ & ryan RUSSELL: The intention of this design process was to explore the development of a light-emitting piece that is not merely an object, but an architectural surface that is dynamic and offers depth. The project seeks to develop and enhance the atmosphere it begins to encompass, shedding light in multi-level patterns upon surfaces while offering a spatial glow throughout the space in which it is held.
