Light brings back life in the buffer zone of Nicosia, where decaying houses and distinctive remains of bullets on the tectonic fabric reveal the war zone of the past. Hyperions’ bullets aim in revitalizing wounded places, whilst maintaining their historic identity.
These ephemeral luminaires consist of 3 parts. The bottom rounded part which is the bullet hole infill, the copper stem which grows towards the bullet trajectory and the planar source of light similar to a tag unveiling its specifics.
These light fixtures will be made out of copper, from the local ‘phoenix mine’. Iterations can be used in various post-crisis locations, to reinstate life and create a new inspiring scenery. Light will fill up the bullet holes and essentially invert the voids and trace trajectories of war into bright sources that guide to a new future.
