In this longterm research project I was commissoned to harness the poetry of light. The result is a unique caustic technology that allows to engineer metal mosaics, customized to reflect hidden words, images and meaning when illuminated by a light source.
The project was originally initiated by PCH Innovations & Art+Com Studios

At the base of this light-powered
artifact is a unique surface pattern
of milled metal that, when illuminated
by rays from a light source, radiates
that energy back into a specified
