light concrete

When I get to the office later this morning, I’m going to look for this months copy of icon magazine. I think it has an article about LiTraCon, an amazing new product that just got flagged by z+blog.

It’s a concrete block with lots of fiber optic cable laid into it so that it transmits light from one side to the other. It’s still in the testing phase, but the images on the site are fascinating and exciting. A material whose very title is embedded in the psyche as being the definition of heavy collides with light and the result, dare I say it, is a form of deconstruction. Two bi-polar conditions are critiqued anew from somewhere in the middle.

A further bonus is that it looks bloody marvelous.
