Vantot — Exploded View — Eindhoven, Netherlands

Manipulating light with movement: Cumulus (dimming), Eclipse (darken), Lunar (reflect).

Do we understand what happens when we dim the lights? And to what extent could the dimming become part of the design? Exploded View shows that the key factor is to move the light source closer to the object or further away. After all, the sun never fades; it is the earth that moves closer and further away, causing the light to reflect, change colour, dim or die. Ultimately the experiment has led to a series of lamps representing different approaches: Cumulus, which dims through layering; Eclipse, which keeps the light contained or sets it free; and Lunar which plays with reflection.
