Light Space Modulator Strasbourg 2016

Exploring and rethinking the Ligt-space modulator of Moholy Nagy

During this one week workshop we investigated the famous light space modulator created by Bauhaus professor Moholy Nagy in 1920s. He was investigating the relationship between light, space and movement and how these interrelated things impact each other over time. With sensor technology and a variety of materials the students created interactive light, space modulators of their own while getting a great insight into a historic period as well as the technologies of our own time.

Students attending the workshop were master students from Strasbourg University, department of Design. They had a good insight in art, craft and design and we added to their skills an awareness of the influence, the dangers and the possibilities of technology in a hands-on experience with idea generation, a little bit of coding and a great deal of material properties when new technology and traditional materials are combined.

Workshop concept and leadership: Hanne-Louise Johannesen and Michel Guglielmi (Diffus Design)
Project partner: Ecole Nationale Superieure de L’Architecture de Strasbourg
