In 2014, artist duo Luftwerk transformed Mies Van de Rohe’s historic Farnsworth House into a revelatory canvas of light and sound. Inspired by the minimalist structure of the building with its eight iconic vertical columns, horizontal floor and roof planes, Luftwerk cast video projections onto its beams and through its glass walls, resulting in a reanimation of our understanding and appreciation of this iconic structure. The projected patterns deconstructed and reconstructed the building’s physical geometry, celebrating its modern architectural gestures.
Normal created the catalogue that celebrates and documents this acclaimed exhibition. The design of the publication pulls inspiration and content from Luftwerk’s light projections, as well as the geometry of the house.
