The muqarnas is a form of architectural decoration composed of niche-like, honeycomb shapes, arranged in tiers that cover the undersides of vaults and arches. LUZ, in effect, is a solidified interpretation of the Alhambra muqarnas, transforming an arrangement of spaces into solid shapes through a process of deconstruction. The installation inverts the geometry, materiality and light source of the murqanas to create a collection of pieces in which each represents the physical manifestation of a surface. The regular half-tone pattern of these objects is reconfigured at it transforms into projected light, becoming fluid, organic and ethereal.
The designer Bahar Al Bahar is a Syrian architect and designer living in the UAE, whose work operates at the threshold between the digital and the material. He believes that through understanding the potential and limitations of both, their integration can generate rich and rewarding results. Sawsan Al Bahar is a Syrian architect and artist, trained in architecture and visual media. She approaches art and printmaking as a cross-disciplinary practice, combining contemporary architectural production processes with traditional art techniques.
