(Universal Assembly Unit - Commissioned by iGuzzini UK)
︎An interactive digital artwork designed by UniversalAssemblyUnit and commissioned by architectural lighting company iGuzzini, to celebrate the power of light as vehicle for social innovation. The installation was exhibited to the public during London Design Festival 2016 and as part of the Brompton Design District in South Kensington.
︎Exploring our future relationship to light, it features around 20,000 individual points of LED light brought to the surface through fibre optics, and is dotted with sensors measuring light intensity. By shining a light onto these pollination points, the artwork responds with bursts of illumination resembling a kind of bioluminescent coral reef. Light Pollination imagines a more expressive way of interacting with artificial light that reflects the dynamism of human behaviour. It explores ideas of the future cityscape and how interactive technology will effect public infrastructure.
INTERACTIVE LIGHT CANOPY
(HUT Architecture X Universal Assembly Unit)
︎Part of an interdisciplinary research project in collaboration with HUT Architecture. It is an interactive light canopy reimagining the identity and function of the primitive hut in the 21st century. Deconstructing its universal elements, the hut is then reconstructed as a lightweight, illuminated structure which reflects our growing cultural obsession with digital technology and more specifically the bombardment of notifications which distance us from human interaction.
︎For Pixel Hut version 2.0, the canopy was installed in a gallery space with food created by Dinnerat29. Sensors under a 2-way mirrored table picked up on phone notifications, which were then exaggerated and personified by overwhelming motion and chromatics saturating the space.
