Continuum Lighting Installation // UVA

3

Taking a closer look into the sound and light waves traveling the world around us, Continuum was born out of studies into interference; interacting waves that are refracted by the environment and spaces we occupy. The piece is an attempt to merge the visible and invisible and to observe the complex fringes of order. With Continuum, UVA takes this idea of interfering fields, and tries to reapply it outside the confinements of physics.

A space that praises Spanish designer’s diversity and in turn, increases their value. An exhibition where the visitor’s interaction will take on new meaning, and who in turn, become the true main characters of this event, allowing you to enjoy and perceive with all your senses, the quality and passion that the Spanish stamp on their products.

(I)cone Installation Made From Traffic Cones // Like Architects

3

(I)cone is an impertinent and interactive orange installation, of a great visual impact, waiting to surprise citizens and inviting them to experience the public space in a new way. Like Architects chose to use plastic as the main material of a permanent art installation, because it is hard and very resistant thus offering a range of possibilities for this type of intervention. This art installation subverts the original meaning of the object – the traditional orange traffic cones, which usually require traffic to circumvent an obstacle – inviting visitors to cross and interact with it.

myThread Pavilion // Jenny Sabin

6

Turning performance into structure for the Nike Flyknit Collective, Jenny Sabin is an innovator who works at the intersection of art, architecture, design and science. Sabin often starts from a molecular point-of-view where the singularity of a single unit such as a zip-tie becomes the building block for structures of great complexity. Like Nike Flyknit, which uses simple threads to create a complex formfitting structure on a performance-enhancing shoe, Sabin’s fusions of science, art and technology open the door to new ways of thinking about structure and the relationship of the body to technology.
