Light up model variation

Not only did I experiment with the light bulb, I also tried to use some LED fairy lights which provided many light sources from different angles. When wrapped around and surrounding an object, the LED lights create multi-directional shadows. Through this observation, I noticed how different types of light create different effects on the model. Moving the light source around the structure revealed unique patterns of light and shadow, these insights could be inspiration to develop variations of the model. I am pleased with the result. It reminds me of the pillars I took photos of in my primary research

Olafur Elliason- Five fold sphere project

  • space, distance, colour and light exploration
  • transforming museum/galleries into immersive environments
  • I like the elegance, simplicity and lack of materiality of this piece

- aerodynamic (wind propeller)

- 3D printed

- wind converting to electrical energy to power LED

- I really like the modular composition of the piece, I want to use paper to recreate the effects of 3D printing, perhaps I would use origami.                                                                   download.php?file=1414907&embedded=1&textbox=1414916

- permanent neon installation

- underground tunnel, exploring colour intensity and temperature function as aesthetic regulatory factors.

THE BRIDE MEDIUM by Mammalampa

Origami + light

Joanie Lemercier has been experimenting with light projected onto 3D canvases. This lastest work created for a Birmingham gallery space was created using sheets of A4 paper folded into pyramids onto which he projected light resulting in an interesting organic effect.

I thought Richard Sweeney's modular paper folding related to my work. We used the same technique of folding paper repetitively to create different forms. It also reminded me of the primary research that I did- sketching the lights & shadows formed from the pillar in the British museum.

Bioluminescence is the production and emission of light by a living organism. It is a form of chemiluminescence. Bioluminescence occurs widely in marine vertebrates and invertebrates, as well as in some fungi, microorganisms including some bioluminescent bacteria and terrestrial invertebrates such as fireflies.

Joa Herrenknecht - light and shadows

I like how the designer cut out simple shapes which casted shadows imitating water ripples. It completely captures the movement of water spreading around the lamp structure.

Using spectrum glass to multiply the white lamps into an array of colours creating a rainbow effect that changes when viewed from different angles. The design transforms ordinary off-shelf products, emphasising their graphic and simple beauty.
