Infinite Support is a project created by the Dutch collective Lightform, which is made up by the young creatives Dorus van Lieshout, Ivar Posthumus, Daniël Thomassen and Raoul van der Ploeg. The collective, four sworn friends, focuses on finding exiting applications of new technologies. With Infinite Support they translated their ideas about friendship into a beautiful light object. ’To us friendship means supporting one another through thick and thin. As far as we’re concerned, friendship is never ending.’
What we see are two drop-shaped objects, visible from afar beause of the subtle changes of different colours of light, enticing the public to come closer. The two shapes turn out to need each other to stay upright. If we come even closer, the sculpture, that can be touched, turns out to contain mirrors, suggesting an unfathomable depth. According to Lightform, the mirrors symbolise real friendship: a bond without limits.
LightForm is a Dutch collective consisting of Daniel Thomassen, Raoul van der Ploeg, Dorus van Lieshout and Ivar Posthumus. The four creatives are involved in various applications of technological developments and each have their own specialization: Thomassen is a 3D-artist and has a line of artistic toys, Posthumus is a graphic designer, Van Lieshout is a video mapping specialist and Van der Ploeg is an organization advisor. The men have known each other since they were 17 years old and have been friends for most of their lives. Infinite Support is the result of their close working relationship
