Le Papillon D’Or
Papillon D’Or is a sculptural parametric installation taking inspiration from the suspended movement in air of a butterfly. The installation represents the team’s personal interpretation of the theme of beauty, concentrating on an abstraction of the butterfly — a symbol of freedom, ephemerality, beauty — and aspects of lightness, colour and the use of light. This temporary installation has been designed with the intention to instigate childlike excitement, by making use of golden dichroic, holographic mirror vinyl, which will refract light and offering visitors various experiences of the installation in relation to different view points. Through the juxtaposition between a modern, computational design and the historic courtyard site, a tension is generated, transforming and redefining the space and the generated spatial impressions of visitors through the use of light and shadow. Both the design and fabrication processes are driven by computational tools: the Papillon D’Or, made out of PET and vinyl components is based on a minimal surface, which has been reparametrized and algorithmically optimized and panelized.
