Visitors to vivid sydney can find themselves bathed in light within a giant three-dimensional kaleidoscope. Japanese artists masakazu shirane and new zealander reuben young have created 'Light Origami’, a domed structure made up of more than 320 geometric shapes, which constantly shift and alter the spectrum of light projected within the luminous space. when mirrored against the reflective perspex material, viewers are enveloped by a visual effect that mimics the interior of a kaleidoscope, with changing perspectives and impressions upon entry.
I wanted to make an interactive space that people could design for themselves. That was my initial idea, and then I devised a 3D kaleidoscope to develop that concept further. Light origami is Third prototype based on this idea.
Masakazu Shirane (KAZ) is space designer come from Japan, recognized for its work in architecture, interior design, and spatial art. My studio respect for "Craftsmanship" which can find new materials and design innovation.
