'' framework f5x5x5 is a kinetic light sculpture, extending the bi-dimensional screen space, by transposition of its pixel resolution to the physical space. Conceived as a modular infrastructure, the sculpture is a communication and computation system, propagating in form of light and sound, the events it inhabits. Presence and motion create and alter the transmitted data, and propagation of this data becomes a space-time parameter.

framework 5x5x5 refers to informatics' modular workspace, called a framework. Here, the 5x5x5 "frames" constitute the framework, a space built up by five modules of 2x2m, divided in 5x5 squared elements, establishing a matrix of 5x5x5 = 125 modules. At the one side diffusing the light (white) and at the other side absorbing the light ( black ), the modules constitute a binary language (0,1) and a space of 125 pixels, allowing to transcribe captured data from the physical environment in a kinetic and luminous play _ in between opening and closing, in between transparency and reflection, in between light and dark."
