Geometry of Light
October 9, 2019
Geometry of Light is a light-based art intervention by Luftwerk in collaboration with Iker Gil, which projects light and patterns both inside and on the grounds surrounding the Farnsworth House, a historic Bauhaus-inspired home located outside of Chicago, Illinois that was designed by renowned Bauhaus thinker Mies van der Rohe. The piece will be accompanied by an original sound installation developed by Oriol Tarragó.
The three-night event at the iconic house will uncover the forgotten history of the site and remnants of earlier landscape by revealing the underlying geometries that relate the world-renowned house to its river floodplain, site topography, and trees that no longer exist.
Geometry of Light premiered this past February at the German Pavilion in Barcelona designed by Mies van der Rohe and Lilly Reich. The installation was presented as part of the Fundació Mies van der Rohe’s ongoing program of artistic interventions. The installation at the Farnsworth House will also coincide with the third edition of the Chicago Architecture Biennial.
The installation will be on view from October 11-13. Find more information and purchase tickets here.
