The Rijksmuseum has acquired an installation with five Shylights by Studio Drift, a performative sculpture that unites the movement of industrial motors with silk chalice structures.
“We have always been fascinated by movements in nature and that’s how we started the project that we call ShyLight.

We were looking for a structure in these patterns so that, if they had flown down, they could have caught the wind opening up in a natural way”
