The project started with an invitation to curate an event from the art gallery sic! elephant house in Lucerne to host an ephemeral evening.

We defined “light” as the central theme. The outcome was Spektra: a research journal, tool and design object in one.

The 16-page booklet is produced in a complex 8-colour offset printing process. Only one part of these colours, however, lies within the visible spectrum. The booklet can be re-discovered when illuminated in a higher frequency wave range: Suddenly new information appears, colours change and each side is perceived in a new way.
