Leda Luss-Luyken is a Greek/American conceptual Artist. She studied arts and architecture and started her career in Zurich and New York, strongly influenced by the works of Frank Gehry, Frank Lloyd Wright, Mies van der Rohe and Zaha Hadid as well as Japanese garden architecture. Read her full story here.
Modul-Art is a truly unique conceptual innovation designed by Leda Luss Luyken. It brings motion (change over time) as well as interaction by the 'user' into a medium which is otherwise stationary (fixed in time).
We like to compare Modul-Art to video games - in its essence, a video game is comprised of a series of pictures, like a movie, only that you as the user, no longer an observer, define the outcome. Modul-Art is exactly the same in material form.
Each panel can be replaced with any other panel within 'the grid' and also rotated in 4 different orientations.
Really get into it here.
You will receive the original painting "Flight" created in 2000 consisting of 6 modules (60 x 60 cm) created and signed by Leda Luss Luyken. The frame is included as well as a certificate of authenticity. Only one original sample of this painting is in existence.
Each module of the "Flight" reproduction is printed on a 60 x 60 cm panel, and pre-mounted inside a ModulArt frame, exactly the same as the original version of the painting. Each art module is hand signed by Leda Luss Luyken on the back side of the panel. The quantity of prints are limited by the duration for which this reproduction is sold exclusively by Peppermint Products.
The Modul Art framing system relies on a grid of small magnets which you attach to your wall. Magnets, screws, and dowels needed to create the grid are included in your delivery. You will need to drill 4 small 5mm holes per panel into your wall.
Each module comes pre-mounted in its own steel powder-coated frame designed by Peppermint Products. It attaches to the magnetic grid on your wall with a satisfying 'click' allowing you to remodulate your composition with ease.
The rest is 'magic' - we promise that this is a lot simpler than it sounds.
Modul Art is environmentally friendly:
1. The reproduction is 'made in Germany' and it fits into a really small (62x62x20cm) package. This means the transport-carbon-footprint is kept at an absolute minimum.
2. The canvas of each reproduction is made from SEAQUAL®YARN a high quality 100% post-consumer recycled polyester yarn containing up-cycled marine plastic.
3. The frame is made of recycled and infinitely recyclable steel, just in case you end up hating your art piece, it will be made into another product. Read the details here.
4. The core frame and the canvas on the original artwork is 100% organic - the wooden structure is made from fast growing pine, so no harmful substances here either :)
