Ai Weiwei – Thinline limited edition art object

A limited series of artworks to accompany a big installation by Ai Wei wei during the 2017-2018 edition of theĀ Amsterdam light festival.

The big installation consist of a 3km continuous line of light which circles around the center of Amsterdam. To commemorate this new artwork I was asked to help design and fabricate a limited series of smaller artworks. We went through a lot of design iterations and had a few issues during manufacturing but in the end we produced a total of 100 pieces.
