Facade and Interior Light Projections

Visitors to Expo 2017 Astana, Kazakhstan were delighted by Claudia Caviezel's colourful flower power textile print facade for the Swiss Pavilion and her light projections on its all-white interior. Invited to contribute by Atelier Oï, Caviezel collaborated with them to capture the Expo theme of innovative renewable Future Energy. Caviezel takes photographs as she hikes and walks around Switzerland. These photos inspired the facade design and her interpretative vision of majestic Swiss landscapes dotted with famous Swiss symbols. Caviezel's projections of multiple shapes and designs transformed the interior surfaces, immersing visitors in her moving panoramic sensory experience.
