ABOUT THE INSTALLATION

Les Araignees(The Spiders) is a light installation created by the French design artist studio Groupe LAPS — six artists and designers with combined expertise and technical know-how who work in film development, light installations, and multimedia applications.
Groupe LAPS utilize LED light tubes to create life size stick figure arrangements, that, when paired with a soundtrack, flash on and off in a choreographed display that creates a sense of movement to become a life scale physical stop-frame animation.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Groupe LAPS operates in and on public spaces, living spaces, functional spaces, the public places, in an urban environment. They have exhibited at numerous premier international light festivals including GLOW Eindhoven, Singapore and Lumiere London.
