An extension of White Night, Freeway pays tribute to the spectacle of urban life and its mosaic of signage.

 

Animated, flashing, flickering: the bright signs fuel the enchanting tempo of cities and activate our kinetic experience. A nod to flashing lights, the reflective surface in perforated aluminum wraps around a cylinder of light. While rotating, it subtly and momentarily obscures the latter in regular punctuation. In this game of appearance / concealment, the gyratory movement is voluntarily slowed down to better offset the primary function of the flashing lights.

An intersection of technical objects and luminous urban signals, Freeway creates a graphic and contemplative presence.
