The repurposing and reutilisation of everyday items and places allows for a variety of new interpretations and perspectives. The participative installation »Lux Ovalis« spatially interprets the themes of unity and diversity, community and coexistence against the background of fundamental parameters for two and three-dimensional design – surface, colour, form, structure and material. At the two locations that have been created so far (more are in the works), visitors are invited to experiment with the three primary colours and fill one of around 6,000 bottles with paint. A colourful variety is created, symbolising human diversity.
»Lux Ovalis« creates a maximal aesthetic effect with simple means. Colour is the basis for all design – and in the case of this participatory exhibition format, a form of expression for the public. The students of the two degree courses (Architecture/Interior Design and MA in Exhibition Design) instruct us how to mix our own, highly personal nuances from the basic colours and to present them on a backlit shelf: a poetic symbol for our colourful community – successfully implemented in two locations thus far.
