System reflectodyne

A new system of dyne reflection is developed after several years of experiments in his atelier at the beginning of the 60s. This system is based on a totally different technical principle than dyne of luminescence, although the outside form of the object stays the same. There are light sources inside a flat cupboard with a big front projecting board. The light passes through a revolving coloured disc and falls onto a rotating aluminium structure with irregular  crumpled-like surface which is reflected onto a transparent projecting board. On this board there are changeable and moving lyric lights that act on spectator's sensibility by different colours, shapes, rhythm and movement. Compared to the imaginative nature of dyne of luminescence, the dynes of reflection are more abstract. They do not have a fixed composition but they continuously change their shapes and colours and are more independent of particular contents.
