Created by French artist Julien Salaud luminescent ceiling installation “Grotte Stellaire” (Stellar Cave) decorates Palais de Tokyo’s Alice Guy Hall in Paris. The sculptural light installation involves interweaving strands of white string, held down with nails, illuminated by a projected ultraviolet light. Walking in and looking up at this radiant ceiling filled with astral imagery and animal figures may feel like entering a grotto. Also, its inner etchings become visible due to the water’s reflection. The installation is at Parisian gallery as part of the Triennial of Contemporary Art that runs through August 6, 2012.

A detail of Luminescent ceiling installation by French artist Julien Salaud

The polygonal representations of deer combined with the galactic connecting and intertwining lines also make this piece look like a section of the night sky with figurative constellations. There’s something primal about the setting appearing like a cave, and yet there is a futuristic appeal in its glowing contoured visuals.
