An undulating canopy of cardboard tubes by American studio Cristina Parreño Architecture and students from MIT hovered over visitors at the ARCOMadrid art fair in Spain last month (+ slideshow).
The white cardboard tubes were suspended from a wire mesh structure and the cables holding the tubes were cut to different lengths to create the varied topography.
Lights were fixed above the installation to shine down through the gaps in the tubes.
"The light was extremely simple – it was really the geometry of the surface that created the light effect," Parreño told Dezeen.
The team from MIT comprised James Coleman, Sharon Xu, Koharu Usui, Natthida Wiwatwicha and Hannah Ahlblad.
Other installations we've published lately include a wall of clocks that make patterns with their moving hands and a warehouse filled with luminous tissue paper clouds – see all installations.
