Primarily known for his video collage installations that re-contextualize found imagery, Marco Brambilla created an immersive video work called ‘Crystal Observatory’ to welcome visitors into Watches of Switzerland’s prestigious selection of luxury timepieces at the brand new Hudson Yards retail center. The abstract work takes its viewers through a journey inside an intricate crystalline space of flux, where the unique properties of a crystal and its capacity for infinite reflections and refractions are visualized using a state-of-the-art computer graphic simulation.
As with his past works like Civilization (Megaplex), Crystal Observatory brings together Brambilla’s talents as both a filmmaker and an artist. Taking inspiration from Cubist art and early light artists, Brambilla used computer-simulated crystals carved into increasingly complex geometric patterns to demonstrate its capacity for reflection. The work displays through motion picture the ways in which patterns emerge from movement, light and color.
