Living Cells

Who: Paul Coudamy

What: Inspired by the mathematical formula of 3D foam bubbles, the installation features clusters of black magnetised marbles resembling caviars around steel structures. Because of the magnetic tension between the marbles and steel, each time the installation is assembled it takes a different form as the “living” marbles drape and spread over the static structures.

Solid Frequencies

Who: Paul Coudamy

What: See the spellbounding power of science up close, where in a transparent tube, caviar-like marbles move with invisible sound waves in an amazing kinetic dance. An interactive element lies in the visitors’ touch—each time activating a different shape that flows through the tube with the hand’s movement.

Audio Visual Installation

Who: TremensS

What: This installation starts with a giant monolith in a pitch-black room, where an intense laser light cuts through the space and four projectors cast abstract visuals around the room. Apart from being great for photos, the installation itself presents an immersive interaction between laser, video and sound, representing an ethereal and technological side of La Prairie.
