This Point Dume residence in Malibu, California probably has one of the most amazing views of the Pacific Ocean. Designed by Griffin Enright Architects, this modern luxury home sits on the highest points of Point Dume. Inside, large expansive windows, floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors all come together to make the house feel like part of its outside surroundings. As the architects states, “This project explores the nature of fluidity and sequence in the context of space, circulation and landscape.”
Austrian-born artist Erwin Redl uses LEDs as an artistic medium. Working in both two and three dimensions, his works redefine interior and exterior spaces. Born in 1963, Redl began his studies as a musician, receiving a BA in Composition and Diploma in Electronic Music at the Music Academy in Vienna, Austria. In 1995, he received an MFA in Computer Art at the School of Visual Arts in New York, where he now lives.
Redl’s works have received attention both nationally and internationally. With his piece Matrix VI (detail), he lit the face of New York’s Whitney Museum of American Art for its 2002 Biennial Exhibit. Works such as Matrix II, which was shown in New York, Germany, France, Austria, and Korea, and Fade I, which animated the Eglise Sainte-Marie Madeleine in Lille, France, explore volume and allow people to move through lit spaces.
