Lighting Artist Marcus Tremonto: New Works

by Brian Fichtner
on 22 June 2009

Since we last covered the work of Marcus Tremonto, the New York-based lighting magician has been busy with a host of new projects including collaborations with the Swarovski Crystal Palace and an exhibition at Spazio Rossana Orlandi during this year's Milan Furniture Fair (images after the jump). Recently, Tremonto completed an installation for his first exhibition in Switzerland at the Franziska Kessler Gallery in Zurich.


Part of a two-person show entitled "Between Lines," Tremonto fills a stark white room with his mind-bending creations. Of considerable note is the new series, Paper Landscapes (pictured at top), a flexible, razor thin luminous surface that the artist has been experimenting with for two years.

The Paper Landscapes series draws inspiration from an outdated technology used to generate topographic digital landscapes and was conceived so that users can connect multiples and alter the height of the sheet at select points, allowing for a near infinite set of undulating variations.

Other pieces on view include the illusive Stitch Lamp (right) and the Dali-esque Spill Lamp (below).
