It’s been nearly 2 1/2 years that I have been periodically working on a public installation for the new building of “Het huis” at Egide van Ophem n°46, Uccle, Brussels, BE.
Next week I will finally start making the permanent installation called “Microkosmos” which consists of a 7.5 x 21.5 meters wall painting, illuminated by custom LED white light sources that substantially modify the colors of the paints.
more information soon

Hommage à Edwin H. Land, 2017
Halogen lamps, special white lamp designed in collaboration with GVA lighting (model FL-100), various objects
The space is illuminated by two different white lights that have the same whiteness and color temperature (about 3000K). Common colorful objects are displayed on two pedestals: fruits, flowers, color samples, beer bottles, etc.
The objects illuminated by the special white light dramatically change: pilsener beer look like sparkling rosé, dull blue objects appear bright turquoise, warm yellow plastic becomes bright orange, lemons become whitish, dark purple flowers appear dullish blue.
All colors except for white, grey and black are changing. People with “normal” color vision are experiencing something like color-blindness. People’s skin and blue eyes also change, they somehow appear more beautiful…
Here’s the text written for the show (in French):
