Florian Brillet + David Letellier
Light sculpture for a church. Wallers (FR) . 2014

This project was carried out after a competition launched on the occasion of the reconstruction of the Saint-Vaast church, which was destroyed by a fire in 2006.
The sculpture is both mineral and metallic, consisting of a polygonal filigrane structure, fitted with translucent white alabaster panels.
From each vertex of the prism, LED projectors emit light, filtered through the alabaster plates, and the depth of the metallic structure, acting as a diffuser.
The form is based on a tetrahedron crystal, representing the regular microscopic structure of certain materials in their natural state.
The sculpture evokes the inherent spirituality of a place of worship by the representation of the geometric natural order.

The structural design is a contemporary three-dimensional interpretation of techniques used in traditional sacred architecture, where the supporting structure is detailed both functionally and aesthetically, to be sublimated until becoming expressive and meaningful. In this way, envelope and structure are united in a complex, but regular geometry.

Cut into thin panels, alabaster has exceptional qualities for filtering light and diffusing a soft palette of colours, ranging from pure white to light yellow. The diffused light reveals the veins of the material and the different shades of the stone.
