Diskohedron lamps are computational objects – estranged technology whose purpose and effects on the society are not clear. Diskohedron stands for impossibility – and even uselessness of interpretation. The lamps are non-gestural art pieces, free from expression and any biographical references.
A Diskohedron is a light object, consisting of (30-32) independently controlled light sources. Diskohedron acts as a homogeneous light organism; a spatial animation which consumes up to 3.2KW of electricity and evokes an incandescence feeling. Diskohedron’s elegant design is comprised of 30 equally distributed rhombic tiles which all together form a rhombic triacontahedron.
The two lamp models have a very different aesthetic but are in fact made of the same material and form the same polyhedron shape. They carry no intention or meaning – they are geometrical objects whose shape was chosen to distribute programmable light sources along a near-perfect sphere. They serve as bodies for computational expression – expression of computers.
