An interactive grid of 196 custom-made responsive lightsources explores light as a material for creating temporary structures.
'Konstruktur' is a live experiment that challenges the perception of space. Appearing as a three dimensional sketch pad, the installation works as an interactive light architecture. By inviting visitors to create temporary structures of light, the installation explores the fleeting urban spaces of tomorrow.
The installation is built using custom-made lightsources, each consisting of a LED, two lenses and a circuit board. Together they create a grid of 196 identical light beams.
By using smoke, the beams of light are made visible to the human eye - almost like transforming an otherwise intangible form into a physical object.
Each light beam operates individually and reacts to movement. A camera detects bodies moving in front of the installation, which creates a temporary dialogue between the light architecture and the visitors.
