In collaboration with Namur University.

The topic "Light, Color, and Matter" is an exploration into the dynamic relationship between perception and materiality. It encompasses a broad spectrum of topics, including the study of vision in various organisms, from humans to animals and insects,  the fundamental properties of electromagnetic radiation, the behavior of light waves, and the interaction of light with matter. Exploring texture, transparency, reflectivity, and other material qualities enriches our understanding of how light interacts with surfaces and shapes our perception of the world.

Adrien Lucca

Since 2009, Adrien Lucca develops a multidisciplinary body of work around color and light that questions our perception of the physical world. In search of practical means of action to set up aesthetic experiences, he has set up a research and production laboratory where he conceives his works in an autonomous way at the intersection of art and science.To the antipodes of a sad passion for the normalization and the technicization of our relations to the physical world, Lucca believes that one can highlight the strangeness of the link between the physical world and our perception of it by appropriating scientific and technological resources. His most recent work aims at redefining the very concept of “color”. Adrien Lucca (born in 1983 in Paris) lives and works in Brussels, Belgium.

Studio Adrien Lucca 

Created in 2015, Studio Adrien Lucca is a Belgian company whose main activity is the design, production and installation of monumental artworks in the public space.The studio has in-house research, innovation, prototyping and production activities that allow it to be largely autonomous with regard to the projects it undertakes. The main specialties are pigment color, glass and LED light, which are used in an approach that combines chemistry, physics and perception. 

Projects are therefore either entirely made in-house or developed via a fleet of digital fabrication machines before being outsourced for production. The studio is equipped with CNC, 2D/3D cutting and printing, physics and chemistry devices,custom-designed software and a paint formulation lab. The studio has collaborated with many specialized companies: glass makers, glass factory, paint manufacturers, industrial production of metal structures, specialized lighting company, custom electronic component manufacturers, engineering and architectural offices, and scientific laboratories.The studio has thus acquired considerable experience in the realization of large-scale projects.
