In their installation 'Parabolic Lightcloud', Renzo B. Larriviere and Simone Chua (amigo & amigo) use more than 1,000 lights to make something invisible visible: our human emotions.
Peruvian artist Renzo B. Larriviere (1985, pictured) and Australian artist Simone Chua (xxxx) met while studying industrial design at the University of Technology in Sydney. They enjoyed working together and started their own light design agency amigo & amigo in 2012. Their large-scale, technically complex light installations are often playful and invite the audience to interact. They are usually positioned in the public space, like their artwork Affinity which was exhibited outside the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney in 2015.
"As Waterschap Amstel, Gooi and Vecht and Amsterdam Clean Water we are proud to connect our names to the artwork 'Parabolic Lightcloud'. For us, this artwork, of which the net is made from recycled plastic bottles, symbolises all the waste that we collect each day from the Amsterdam canals. We are proud of our canals and together we keep them clean."
