Rune stone with glowing petroglyphs for the Viking Ship Museum in Roskilde in Denmark
Normally our Digital Concrete Screens show the live image made by a projection unit. But sometimes we can't help having some fun with the optic process that goes on in the screen. The shadow of an object is enlarged through the screen and a clear image appears on the front side of the screen. This transparency phenomena will in the future be used in our sculptures for children's play with optic effects.

Dupont Lightstone has started collaboration with Teknologisk Institut with the aim to develop an industrial production method for manufacturing concrete screens with a double curved face. We use an advanced industrial robot to create molds for complex shapes. We also use robot technology to evenly distribute optic fibers on the surface on our new sculptural digital concrete screens. Keep an eye on this new concrete gadget that will change and warp the way to create large screens in the near future.
