Present at the Light Art Biennial Austria (Biennale für Lichtkunst Austria) was an installation created by Manfred Kielnhofer titled “Glowing Light Ball Bench” . The simply designed bench consists of three light balls and two wooden board perforates that lay over the light balls.
Through his dynamic structures, Kielnhofer invites the viewer to an intellectual debate and to philosophical and intellectual stimulation. This work is based on philosophical thinking patterns that are complementary with social impact through application and interaction. Variables such as materials and urban positioning, give the work of art a unique versatility and applicability.
Whether moving, static, bright, swimming, driving, busy or isolated freestanding – the action itself defines the fine line to use artistic design, or art-oriented design to use. ”The moment you try the artwork in my thoughts and words to capture, one realizes that this task almost limitless variations, offers viewpoints and approaches. Kielnhofer redeemed by shape and material, resulting in an avalanche of application functionality and solutions / results on different levels of perception.” Artist Manfred Kielnhofer will appear in the upcoming issue 9 of EYES IN Magazine.
