Flylight by Studio Drift for PAD

Studio Drift created a version of Flylight for the entrance of the Paris edition of PAD.

Studio Drift created a version of Flylight for the entrance of the Paris edition of PAD (The Pavilion of Art and Design).

Ralph Nauta and Lonneke Gordijn of Studio Drift made a special configuration of the installation in the entrance hall of Jardin des Tuileries for the event, which ran from 27 March – 1 April. 

The interactive installation is composed of laboratory test tubes that illuminate and respond to the movements of passers-by. Inspired by the movements of flocks of birds, Flylight welcomed visitors with an invitation of pulsing light.

Studio Drift first appeared at PAD in 2009 when they showed a prototype of Fragile Future, a project developed in collaboration with Carpenters Workshop Gallery. The following year the pair received the PAD London Prize for the work, which was donated to the Victoria and Albert Museum.
