Sculpture: Luminescence 2001

Credit : OT Passy

Luminescence 2001 is a cathedral of the industrial age (Yan Dupuy, 1993).
This pyramid of light, mounted on four legs that support the triangular iridescent needles, consists of plates of a translucent acrylic material similar to glass and as solid as steel: Lexan (polycarbonate). Yan Dupuy (1950), trainee goldsmith, here assembles a material well known in industry, architecture and transport for its strength, light weight and transparency.
