Trippy Monochrome Lighting Makes You Lose All Perception of Reality

By: | December 26th, 2013

Nonotak, a design firm based in Paris, is responsible for a new audiovisual installation called Daydream V.2, which is screwing with the perception of viewers and bouncing them between dimensions through the use of projected light. The duo of Noemi Schipfer and Takami Nakamoto make up Nonotak and have been creating trippy installations similar to their latest piece of work for years.

Nakamoto says, “We like to think we are generating some kind of architecture with light.”

How It Works

In order to allow 2-D vertical lines to turn into a wall or a circle to become a tunnel, Shipfer and Nakamoto map projected light onto many different layers of fabric from multiple projectors. Their technique fools a lot of people into believing Nonotak uses LEDs when in reality all the projections are monochrome.
