Malachite is a light installation created for OFF: Roots United 8 Years event, that took place in St. Petersburg on September 23 2017. It was a part of stage and located behind the DJ booth. Project was inspired by “russian mosaic” masterpieces, that can be found in pre-revolutionary aristocratic interiors in St. Petersburg. A number of stonemasons of that period used carefully selected thin slices of malachite to cover inner walls and interior details with massive continuous black-green patterns. Combination of green laser light and artificial haze produces similar effect.

We developed a lightweight module-based system, that consists of 33 triangle aluminium frames with green laser mounted inside each segment. Modules were assembled in a 2-dimensional diamond-shape structure (5x5 meters) that was mounted on the ceiling. Generative laser animation was synchronised with dj-sets in real-time. Decorative constructions of the dance-hall were made by our sketches. Created kit of triangle modules allows to create wide variety of flat and volumetric structures, providing flexibility at the shape-creation process and easy setup at the venue.
