Microkosmos: preview



Views of the installation behind scaffolding



Microkosmos (flemish for microcosm, i.e. “little world”) is the title of my latest installation situated Rue Egide van Ophem 46 in Brussels.

Made on the 7.5 x 22 m wall of the patio of the future centre “Het huis” (a house for two non-profit organisations), it comprises a wall painting and a “special white” light system that changes the colors of the painting at night.

More information will be available when the installation will be inaugurated in 2018.

Working on a large wall painting in Brussels

I am sorry, today I posted a video which was not public on Youtube, nobody could see it. It is fixed now, thanks.

Work about to start in Brussels


Two pictures simulating the same wall-painting illuminated by daylight (bottom) and “Special White” (top)

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.

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):
