Doing my summer homework in Rome ;)

A monumental stained glass piece in Rome’s Belgian Academy just started to appear. The piece appears completely different during the different phases of daylight around the building.

I don’t know why the media does not seem to care about the very bad air quality in Brussels and in Belgium in general this spring…? Do you have any throat ache today? It may be the air…

Microkosmos – a mural and a lighting apparatus installed in the patio of Het Huys is an installation by Adrien lucca. Multicolor and soft-looking during when illuminated by Daylight, the mural becomes bicolored and very saturated at night, when the artificial Special Warm-White light illuminates it. This light, an invention of the artist, appears first familiar but acts like a color-correction filter in real life. Indeed, this light increases the saturation of most colors while it causes some yellows, greens and violets to vanish into reds, blues or grays.

These two possible states of the installation and all the grades in-between are a symbol of the diversity of Het Huys public and activities. At night, Microkosmos transforms for example the color of blond beer into the color of rosé wine, like in a collective, pleasing and surprising hallucinogenic experiment.

Microkosmos, une fresque et un dispositif d’éclairage spécial installés dans le patio de Het Huys, est une œuvre de l’artiste Adrien Lucca. D’apparence multicolore et douce éclairée par la lumière du jour, la fresque devient bicolore et très vivement colorée à la tombée du jour, éclairée par une lumière spéciale blanc-chaud créée par l’artiste. Cette lumière, inventée par Lucca, apparaît tout d’abord familière, mais elle agit comme un filtre de correction des couleurs « In real life » : elle augmente la saturation de la plupart des couleurs tandis qu’elle fait disparaître certains jaunes, verts et violets devenant rouges, bleus ou gris.

Ces deux états possibles de l’œuvre et leurs gradations intermédiaires symbolisent la diversité du public ainsi que l’éventail d’activités proposées à Het Huys. De nuit, Microkosmos transforme par exemple de nuit la couleur de la bière blonde en celle du vin rosé, comme une expérience d’hallucination collective, plaisante et étonnante.
