FILE FESTIVAL 2015 Polymorf - Hardwired  (3)

FILE SAO PAULO 2015 – INSTALLATION

POLYMORF: Marcel Van Brakel & Frederik Duerinck – Hardwired

Abstract:
“Hardwired” consists of around 18,000 LED-lights that symbolize the transfer of knowledge. Individual luminous pixels connect and then disappear. In a process of constant transformation, new patterns, interrelations and complexities emerge.
The installation was developed by POLYMORF with alumni from the Department of Communication Media Design at the Avans University of Applied Science in Breda.
