Luuk van den Broek

Department: Man and Living

About thirty percent of natural stones are crushed for industrial use as the underlayer for tarmac roads. What a pity of the beauty produced by all those millennia, Luuk van den Broek thought. His Atmospheric light sculpture is a way to use the pieces of waste stone with their natural beauty intact. The different types of stone collectively form an architectonic composition, reminiscent of high buildings in the light of dusk. The diversity in translucence and reflection of the material combine to form a playful and atmospheric whole, the rounded shape results in a continuous stream of patterns in the stone. A fragile iconic object, surrounded by a soft glow of light.
