Translucent Concrete

Light concrete slabs or bricks are manufactured as precast concrete. The material is generally from about 95% fine-grained concrete and 5% light-conducting fibers which are placed in parallel layers in the liquid concrete. Thousands of light-conducting fibers are thus embedded in any light concrete element. If they are illuminated from the opposite side (by sunlight or artificial light sources), they direct the light across the material and bring it to “lights”. Thus, no real transparency is achieved, but rather a “copy” means a person or object between the light source and the light concrete are emerging depending on the distance more or less sharp shadows.

This is not lighting, but it’s just so wonderful I wanted to share it!

Neighborhoods Behind Smoked Glass
In Mathieu Schmitt's 'Glitched' series we find eerie neighborhood settings encapsulated inside smoked glass cubes. The all-white elements of the sceneries – which have been entirely 3D printed – contribute to the ambience of mystery which is reminiscent of a Tim Burton film still.

Created by Kimchi and Chips and commissioned by FutureEverything and the British Council, Light Barrier is the latest installation by Seoul based duo consisting of Elliot Woods and Mimi Son. First shown at New Media Night Festival, Nikola-Lenivets Park (4–6 June 2014), the installation creates phantoms of light in the air by crossing millions of calibrated beams; creating floating graphic objects which animate through space.
