Out of the Blue, a collection of eight sculptures by Milan-based design firm Studiopepe, investigates the relationship of sunlight to surface, through the study of form.  Mostly unseen, this language between sun and what it reaches is made physical by the sculptural objects being brushed with a photosensitive cyanotype solution and then “developed” by light; the resulting variations may be interpreted as blue in its own physical form.

Recalling the camera obscura experiments of Thomas Wedgwood in the 1800s, Out of the Blue explores the possible shifts of light, shadows cast, as well as exposure length to a material, which all lend different effects to the the depth and range of shades produced.

As described by Studiopepe: “The colour blue, in all of its shades and depending upon various factors combined together, becomes the direct result of this encounter. Intrinsically, it tells us the story behind how the object was manufactured, the length of its exposure to sunlight after being brushed with the cyanotype solution, and the light conditions during that timeframe. These coordinates are the name of the object itself, defining its identity and uniqueness.”
