Vai / Germany

Wu Kai Xun (Vai): Fluid lamp. When Form Follows Fluidity. The result from a research into creating fluid materials and formations, combining wax and plaster. Working on different scales, from small to large, the project includes lights, but also architectural models, such as Melting City . “For ages, architects and artists have been using plaster, glass and other fluid materials to create solid and static spaces, sculptures and forms by casting, “ says Wu Kai Xun, “What I’d like to find out if there is a possibility to change this way of making forms, and liberate these materials. During the process of fluidity formation, the material creates voids, openings and transparency, characteristics that can be further explored in lighting”.
