New light sculptures by Susanne Rottenbacher
They attract the views of visitors and pedastrians at the new entrance gate in their bright colourfulness: the light sculptures “Sturm und Drang” by Susanne Rottenbacher. The pedestals create a stage for the expressive light objects. Depending on the sun light, their effect changes from cheerful to melancholic. Their main performance is during the evening, of course. Then, they frame the entrance of Haus am Waldsee like two dancers.
A complicated manufacturing process lies between draft and final light sculpture: The cuttings from acrylic glass were made with 3D scans of the model and design drawings with 3D computer software. In order to create the twisted shapes, the acrylic glass was formed with cold- and warm-shaping-techniques. Now, “Sturm und Drang” stand opposite from each other, greeting the visitors and extending a first invitation for a dialogue that gets continued inside.
