Close up from the illuminated landscape of the Frioul islands in Marseilles on the LED lighting device (the "opening") which "teleports" the endless day of the arctic summer. The combination of the remote polar daylight and the Mediterranean landscape generates a new territory: Arctic Mediterranean.
With Arctic Opening, an outside architectural installation led as an expedition on the Frioul islands of Marseilles (France), fabric | ch proposes to create an “opening” at a large scale, to another day: an artificial and sensitive daylight, revealing some geographical patterns, luminous and meteorological, around the Arctic and across the globe.
Fed by monitored light coming from these polar regions, where in summertime, the horizontal light of the sun never sets, where sunrise and sunset mix, Arctic Opening reproduces the continuous modulation of the northern summer into the south of France.
The combination of north light and south landscape produces a creolized territory: Arctic Mediterranean, remote nocturnal day.
