Astrid Krogh’s Fiber Optic Night Light
Fascinated by the interplay of textiles and light, Denmark-based artist Astrid Krogh explores the dialogue between natural and artificial illumination when paired with fibers. While studying at the Danish Design School, Krogh explored her interest in textiles, which shines through in the craftsmanship, patterns, and ornamentation of her work. Inspired by cycles of life in nature, many of Krogh’s neon patterns use print or woven textiles to evoke the repetition of her natural surroundings. For a recent exhibition, Krogh produced cosmic neon sculptures and large optic fiber tapestries, which were inspired by the subtle transition of light in the sky.
