“Faced head on we capture a geometrical pattern that stretches toward our personal black hole.” says the designer. “But when seen from an angle, the shapes depths distort and merge into each other. You constitute the image you look at by looking at it.”

Part of an ongoing research by Meijer into the way we perceive light, Light Is A Vector manipulates the way light behaves to create “intangible shapes that deceive our understanding of space and new images emerge.”
