Janne Bergmark: Pipe House

Pipe House is a minimalistic art piece, a floating small house.

Pipe House is a minimalistic art piece, in which moving led light create a floating shape of a small house. Soundtrack for the work is an Anna Järvinen’s song "Kärlek, kärlek" (love).  

The creation of the piece started with finding ready-made elements used in building construction or material used in house structures. The water pipes are connected with real-world connectors, and they create the limits to the shape. The shape is made visible by long led strips. Blue RGB-light flows inside the pipes, in darkness they draw lines in the air and render the shape visible.

A soft story about home and love is told by means of minimalism or even constructivism.
