Technology and art connected in TRIANGULAR GRID.
For Triangular Grid, Sigrid Calon explored the limits and possibilities offered by triangular LED panels, that have been specifically designed for the Kalverpassage. The LED-lights can display an infinite range of colour. Together with Naivi, who created a customised digital ‘paintbrush’ in the form of an app that Calon could use to project her work directly onto the screens, she looked into all the possibilities that an RGB LED screen could offer in the way of colour.
Calon developed a complex, almost mathematical formula that would create a different grid every minute. This led to a colour range containing 365 colours based on the number of days in a year. Within this, she created a range of 53 off-whites: one for every week. Each week would consist of a palette of 7 colours including one off-white in which no more than 4 colours would be visible in the grid at the same time. In addition, each day of the week would have a basic shape and directional position on the grid.
