The New Moon in the Old Moon's Arms is a monumental passive light installation on the 15 meters high windows of the main exhibition space of Fondation Fiminco. The work suggests a semi-pixelated dark cloud mounted on the hall’s windows that appear differently in changing light conditions and explores the relevance of natural light in former industrial buildings. It focuses on the evolution of workspaces through the use of natural light.

Commissioned by Fondation Fiminco, Paris for Freedom of Sleep, a curatorial project by Anabelle Lacroix
