Flatlight Project

Dimensions play a big role in our daily life. Most of the objects surrounding us have been given very specific measurements and are carefully placed on the XY and Z axes with you as the origin.

Optical depth or optical thickness, is a measure of transparancy. The optical depth expresses the quantity of light removed from a beam by scattering or absorption during its path through a medium. Optical depth is dimensionless, and in particular is not a length.

Technical information

The Flat lights play with the idea of physical dimension and the concept of optical depth. Using perforated material gives us, to a certain extend, the opportunity to control the optical depth of the objects.

It’s a search for the ‘object’ between ‘the flat’ and ‘the 3 dimensional’.
