Geometry of Light by Luftwerk & Iker Gil at National Trust Historic Site Farnsworth House October 11, 12 & 13, 2019

As part of the 2019 Chicago Architecture Biennial, National Trust Historic Site Farnsworth House is participating with an installation you simply can’t see anywhere else: Geometry of Light, a light-based art intervention by Luftwerk in collaboration with Iker Gil.

During this site-specific installation taking place October 11-13, 2019, light and patterns will be projected both inside and on the grounds surrounding the Farnsworth House. Presented in concert with a sound-piece developed by Oriol Tarragóin in direct response to the site, this intervention will reveal underlying geometries that relate the house to its river floodplain site, topography, and natural landscape.

Luftwerk is the artistic collaboration of Petra Bachmaier and Sean Gallero, and we sat down with them to learn more about Geometry of Light and its relationship to the Farnsworth House.

Photography will be allowed on the site during the exhibition for personal use only; please note that all policies are in effect from our Photography page, including the required waiver signatures and equipment restrictions.
