The Sacred Geometry of Chance Art Installation by acrylicize


The Sacred Geometry of Chance’ 3010 x Hand Made Black Dice Acrylic / Aluminium Frame
JB 2011

3010 dice, each rolled individually creating a sea of seemingly random patterns.
This piece represents the entrepreneurial spirit of life and taking risks – crucial for any business to succeed at the highest level. The idea was everyone has a chance to ‘roll the dice’ in life is embraced by the process in which this piece has been made.

Each set of dice was rolled by different people spanning many different backgrounds. It is the outcome of these rolls which dictated the arrangement of the dice, illustrating that while some may win and some may loose, the chance is there for everyone to take.

Cloud Installation at colette Paris by Pernilla+Asif.

20111221-112336.jpg

colette this Christmas has commissioned Pernilla & Asif to create a unique miniature version of their Cloud installation previously exhibited at Design Miami / Basel, for the Designers of the Future 2011 Award and later on a giant scale at the boxing venue, York Hall in east London in November 2011.

During the darkest three weeks of the year, every minute one hundred baby clouds will be released within two specially designed vitrines, each combining a cocktail of water, soap and helium gas.

Like colette, always going against the grain and the expected, the flurry of micro-clouds will be like an upside-down snowfall.

‘I first discovered the work of Pernilla & Asif with the so poetic Harvest chair, then I saw the foam clouds they did for DesignMiami, and the very recent sand/ice installation in Singapore. I’m so proud they agreed to do our Christmas Windows with their magical clouds. It will certainly remain one of the most impressive windows in our history and we hope Colette will not fly in the air like a balloon with all the helium we’ll keep!’ – Sarah (Colette)

The special window installation at colette runs from Dec 12-31, 2011. Download a video of the installation here.
PERNILLA & ASIF are currently working on a pavilion commissioned by Coca Cola for the Olympics in London 2012.

Lighting Collection by Naama Hofman

A lighting collection by Naama Hofman just a simple fluorescent bulb and a near transparent holder ? But it’s not. It’s not a fluorescent bulb, it’s an acrylic tube containing 180 energy saving LEDs. The combination saves energy and throws off a lot of light. The collection consists of four light objects. In each light the acrylic tube/ “bulb” crosses and divides the glass in different manner, says Hofman, “thus creating a different character with each composition, using the same materials.”
