I used topographical data (displacement + texture map) and laser sintering in order the make a exact (scaled) replica of the moon.

(I'm studying ways to improve the 3D print quality)

The idea for a series of skeleton brass sculptures came from soldering the 2 legs of the dip led onto parallel rods, resulting in train-track of point lights. After bending them, a skeleton structure did occur.

We are working on the first 3D models now, which will be 3D printed, from wich moulds will be made from which the first brass casts can be made.

Technology often has a serving role as one of the sub-function of the product, therefore put away behind closed housings. Only a context as thin as the light source itself would show us the essence of the beautiful Electroluminescent light technology.

The lighting leaves where initial designed for an installation, presenting the EL leaves in real trees. The Majabe is the translation into an interior object. The result is cropped version of a tree; a lighting bonsai.

lightberg

lightberg

Light sculpture made out of recycled industrial fluid tanks, melted into an abstract iceberg. Blue ice occurs when snow falls on a glacier, due the compression air bubbles are squeezed out, making the ice not only clear but also absorb the red end of the color spectrum, leaving the blue end reflected and visible.

Intothegreatwideopen festival (Vlieland) asked me to create a light installation inspired on the beautiful nature of the island. Coen found a perfect spot, just outside the forest at the top of a dune. On this top you could see both sides of the island, wind hitting hard against the marram grass, which is the fur of the dunes. Optic grass shows marram grass only visible at night….

The (RGB) LED revolution changed the colour of the lighting industry. The challenge was found in changing this tiny point lights into a real diffuse light source. A widely spread product that deals with this issue is the LED strip. Luckily the LED strip is often put away behind luminaries. But occasionally you bump into a sharp pattern of lights.
In the traditional chandelier I did found a form that is actually suitable for the sharp pattern of point lights from the LED strip.
