With their iridescent light and saturated colors, these long-awaited spring days are fast luring us out of hibernation. Berlin artist Camilla Richter captures the seductive atmosphere in her new installation, “Light Catching Shadows”. Through 28.4.2018, viewers can marvel at the work via the panoramic window at concept shopping mall Bikini Berlin. Camilla originally studied product design, and her preference for clear structures and functionality shines through her practice. Light is what enthrals her most, especially in its interplay with through glass — which here takes on a pragmatic yet poetic quality. The carefully-positioned elements of the installation were specifically designed for Bikini Berlin, and includes dichroic glass which interacts with rays of light: depending on the angle, new shadows take shape, making colors appear almost tangible. The work playfully interacts with the considered architecture of the building, which incorporates natural light seeping in through its impressive window facade, flooding the space with the effervescence of the season.
