Kimchi & Chips (KR/UK) → Light Barrier / 2014

About project

Light Barrier uses a special mirror system crossing millions of calibrated beams. The final effect brings phantoms of light – floating graphic objects that come to life through space as they do through time. Just like the impressionists used to inspire themselves by the natural light and that is what helped them to explore new qualities of painting, Kimchi & Chips found their inspiration in the digital light and explore the new visual mechanics.
