Latest FabLab residencies

2017

CLOD is the continuation of a series of projects by Antoine Schmitt exploring the concept of a light pulse visible in the city; first with City Sleep Light, showed at iMAL in 2010, then with City Light Orchestra in 2012. CLOD extends even more the distribution and portability of the light sources; pulsing with the same frequency, they create a sort of visual symphony spread over the city.
