Frederico Reis, architectural assistant at P&P has developed the concept and been responsible for the project ‘Impressions in the Void’.
The project at the KAIROS pavilion in Lisbon was built in the beginning of 2014. Its main reference is to the water lillies series by impressionist artist Claude Monet. The intention of the installation is to provoke the viewer to attempt and understand the relationship between light and shadow, in constant movement and mutation, such as the attention for the moment and the unrepeatable.
All unexpected happenings make part of the life of this piece, where every accident and intervention enables each second to be stated as single and unique. This project aims to capture and work with light at three different levels. The first two are the diffusers, where natural light is texturised, the last level consists in creating a box of reflexes.
