Penumbral Reflections

Penumbral Reflections

Practice : Pac Studio
Location : Objectspace
Status : Completed 2018

Penumbral Reflections is an exhibition that combines distilled ideas and themes from Pac Studio’s recent body of work, together with their continuous work in the field of critical practice research.

The persistent investigation of light and shadow in architecture and a continual interest in developing forms of architectural representation underpin the exhibition. A series of simulations are projected around a latticed grid framework which supports a giant Claude Glass. The room is filled with continually changing shadows, some simulated and some physical. The Claude Glass acts as a reflection of its own surrounding environment, but simultaneously distorts reality. The installation is conceived as a disciplinary experiment in exploring the blurred boundaries between the simulated and the physical within contemporary architectural practice.

Penumbral Reflections was the first architectural exhibition commissioned by Objectspace for their new gallery.
