…or artificial light positioned in a targeted way. Even several light sources with different colors and positions can be oriented to the surface in the space. BlingCrete allows to transform any ordinary space into a highly immersive or interactive environment by lowtech analogue modes. Despite their flatness, the two-dimensional surfaces made of this material are creating a three-dimensional illusion. The visitor’s vantage point, that is normally perceived as the interior facing the exterior or vice-versa, is called into question due to this doubling. BlingCrete™ investigates the possibilities of enlivening materials by taking the surfaces as a starting point both conceptually and technically. It is a change of focus from the appearance of a material to the performance of surfaces.
