Alabama Shake

Lighting object made on request for the entrance of the new cultural center "Oud Gasthuis" and library of Asse near Brussels.

Measuring 2 by 2 meters and more than 3 meters in height, 300 matrioshka dolls are pending on a wired frame. These dolls in white, black and gold are made from adler and lime-tree and laquered by hand.

The form is of a 3 dimensional heart. Red and blue leds are symbols of the veins and artery, the matrishka dolls in different colours and dimensions symbolize our multicultural society.
