Modulating Light - Studentwork, School of Architecture, Lund University
2015-06-11 - 2015-08-02
Modulating Light was a four-week design workshop at Lund University, School of Architecture where students investigated techniques in surface modeling and 3D printing. Students explored geometric relationships between surface continuity, tessellation, and modulation through the use of surface modeling and algorithmic editing software (Rhinoceros 3D and Grasshopper). Computer models were then digitally fabricated using computer aided manufacturing processes (3D printing) in order to evaluate conditions of materiality and light.
Shifting Landscapes - Sharing the Lund University Art Collection
2015-04-24 - 2015-08-02
The Lund University Art Collection can be described as the University’s visual memory. As is the case for many universities with large collections, mainly in the Anglo-American world, the purpose of the collection has been to encourage students’ understanding of art and its role in society through direct engagement with works of art. In this exhibition, a selection of works from the collection, ranging from the fifteenth century to our time, is made accessible to the public for the first time in a very long period. The selection reflects the scope of the collection, but also its focus on Swedish art from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries as well as seventeenth-century Dutch painting.
Lina Selander (b. 1973) is one of Swedens´most innovative artists within the field of moving images. She has produced several public works using light, audio and video. An example of her work is now presented at Skissernas Museum – A Small Monument over Affinity and Creative Community a video installation for Slättgårdsskolan in Bredäng, Stockholm (2012) . Lina Selander will be representing Sweden at the Biennale in Venice in 2015.
Lina Selander is a current artist with Mehr Licht! the over nine hour long installation on the facade of MAX 1V Laboratory at Lund University, which was inaugurated in spring 2015. With the aid of 1 500 blinking led lamps the large 15×9m work will demonstrate the history of light, perception and moving images. Mehr Licht! relates to the activities in the building, which will be the world´s most modern research facility for synchronized light.
