WeÂ receivedÂ pictures of Matteo Messervy’s installation “Hypnotic Conversations” at the commercial center Parly 2 in Versailles, France.
This installation is composed of all original lighting designs crafted with the intention to give the visitors the impression of entering a world of harmony and peace and quiet in contrast with the universe generally proposed by other more traditional commercial centers.
Here the light plays with lines and curves while restoring sensations of natural light. The ceiling offers options of changing times and seasons using video projection. The lighting effects are set to create an atmosphere of a cocoon, intimate and reassuring. Light radiation seen in the distance act as magnets drawing individuals in to a protective and intriguing dimension.
This combination is reminiscent of the heyday of the Kinetic Art and of Op’art culminating in the sixties and seventies. The repetition of forms and the persistence of vision are interpretations of the kinetic phenomena in the brain.
This modern form of tribute to this artistic movement and its most fervent representatives, past or present, will make visitors unconscious actors or volunteers of this ongoing dialogue between humans, architecture and the works of the artist Matteo Messervy.
