The Pleix Installation leaves an eerie impression at the 2062 Exhibition. The creepy sculptural piece is created with the help of sophisticated light technology and aims to predict the next 50 years of our media-obsessed society.

Showcased in the Paris-based La Gaîté Lyrique, the Pleix Installation stands out among the work of 10 artists and designers that interpret our society's technological future. The installation features a visually striking series of tented illumination sculptures. Both alluring or creepy, these glowing art pieces take inspiration from childhood, often featuring props like toys and small furnishings.

French art collective La Gaîté Lyrique covered furnishings and props like oversized teddy bears with a transparent fabric that was illuminated. These fabric-covered sculptures and their bright glow are meant to symbolize individuals' growing obsession with technology and the countless amount of their time that is spent in front of a screen.
