Often architectural in scale Ulf’s work transforms the act of looking into a physical experience. Visitors to venues that he works with find themselves immersed in a sensational play of light and colour, as almost through a kind of light-based alchemy the space metamorphoses into something unique and magical. In addition to working closely with the raw materials of the site, Ulf use light and colour as his essential tools, often combining these natural or artificial elements with the new architectural forms he has designed. His practice exploits both hi and lo-fi technologies and aims to highlight the poetic potential of place.
