  “I see the act of making in direct relation to my work. It can be seen as a wish to involve a performative aspect. There might only remain an image after an action. The work has an affinity with science and mathematics, which I employ as a language to inform and create forms as well as to analyse them.”

Colour, light and the future of solar energy – Maura Biava at Hims Lab

Artist Maura Biava experiments with the pigments developed by Simon Mathew of the HIMS lab at University of Amsterdam.  His colours not only capture and reflect light, but also transform light. How art expresses electricity. For the art historians amongst us: blue is still the most precious colour.
