Hello! Have you heard about the new project in Hainan, China? It was developed as part of the Luneng Sanya Bay light and arts festival by Studio Brut Deluxe. It is an immersive light maze that surrounds visitors in a prismatic and dynamic abyss.
‘Yǔzhòu’, the name of it, needed 2.5-meter-high acrylic glass panels with dichroic film glued to one side.
This process turns the semi-transparent walls into reflective sheets that shift light rays across the color range of a rainbow. As you move through the installation, the hues gradate from cool blues and greens, to vibrant pink and orange tones.
Brut Deluxe created a unique pattern of circular grooves onto one side of the acrylic glass sheets.
These mechanically-carved motifs are illuminated by powerful LED rails that create subtly shifting colors throughout. Miguel de Guzmán and Rocío Romero of Imagen Subliminal photographed the project.
The installation becomes a reflective infinity room as a result of the mirrored film that wraps the outer perimeter panels. once inside, ever-changing light patterns and dynamically-shifting hues surround visitors in an animated, chromatic universe.
