l'istallazione si presenta come due corolle, con una struttura simile al nido d'ape, di colori tendenti al rosa e all'azzurro.

Photoluminescent Architectures are light structures, covered in photoluminescent paint, able to spread light without electric sources, focusing the attention on energy saving and reducing CO2 emission. This installation is part of Zero-Energy Light Architecture project

2. Todd Ingall e Mary Neubauer, Photoluminescent Sound Garden

la struttura si presenta come una serie di dischi sovrapposti in micro strutture, sospesi, di colori rosso, arancione, blu e verde, sorretti da una struttura in metallo.tre strutture create dalla sovrapposizione di dischi fotoluminescenti, una verde, una rossa ed una blu, tutte e tre sospese.dettaglio di due strutture di forma sferica, una arancione ed una blu e rossa, poste una di fianco all'altra e sospese nel vuoto

Raimondo Galeano started his career as a traditional painter. In a second moment he becomes fascinated by physic-scientific themes and the principle of photoluminescence, realizing that color doesn’t exist if not depending on light. He concludes that light is the only instrument capable to give life to his art.

Judi Haberl has spent months searching for the perfect shot in Green Animals Topiary Garden, Rhode Island. The installation is presented as a normal, very big picture inside the gallery, until the light goes gradually off and the spectators can admire the depth created by photoluminescent pigments, with an hyper-realistic and immersing sensation.

7. Antony Garmely, White Cube

Garmely installation encourage the interaction, the spectator has to explore the relation between space and time of the object, and meanwhile how the object act on the spectator. The mean is to inspire a meditative reaction but also provoke questioning. The structure is composed by 15 “space-frames” realized with photoluminescent materials, occupying itself the whole gallery.

8. Mark Hooper Schneider, Glowing Beluga Whale Skeleton

Glowing Beluga Whale Skeleton was exposed at Pacifico Design Center, West Hollywood. The installation, created with photoluminescent pigment and resin, depict the animist belief of the artist Mark Hooper Schneider, who believes that every object, organic or not, has its soul, a sort of rudimental conscience.
