3D reliefs of geometric patterns evolving from the logic of a simple algorithm, programs such as a cellular automata, are created by 64 individually controlled motorised tiles in M0za1que_4x4x4, a kinetic light art installation by LAb[au].

 

 

 

“Moza1que is a modular installation, a wall work, constituted out of 4 modules containing each 4×4 = 16 tiles. Each of the 64 tiles is motorised by a linear actuator with a range of 10cm.” says LAb[au]. “The illumination by three light-projectors in primary colours of red, green, and blue leads to a global white illumination of the tiles but their shadows appear in the secondary colours of light. These coloured surfaces appear and disappear according to the tiles’ movement.”

“The artwork relates motion to colour through the phenomena of light; its reduced language – the primary RGB colours of light and its additive blending as the emerging patterns out of simple geometries and rules – refers to generative and kinetic art but its simplicity and the architectural dimension of the installation refers even more to an elementary art, un art concrete.”
