What did you create?
The project creates 9 rotating LED light installations.With the high-speed spin of the mechanism, the external form of the installation fades away and gives place to the dazzling rings of light.The design presents different positions of the moon, resulting in a remarkable sensory experience.
Why did you make it?
The project inspired by the movement of the moon.It presents different postures of moon shape, exerting new sense experiences. The audience is allowed to explore through various ways of looking and bring curiosity to the installation by watching from different angles.
How did you make it?
The project uses LEDs and motors to represent the different positions of the moon.We experimented the installation with different angles to presents different postures of moon shape,combined with the programming language to design the effect of LEDs.Eventually,we designed 9 standing lighting installations as the best version.
Your entry’s specification
When browsing the history of human civilization, we can frequently see the trace of the moon.The moon is always a fascinating place, the imagination and practice developed to its largest scale in the last century of 60’s.Track back to the “Space race” in the 1960’s, landing on the moon symbolizes the most direct human curiosity and desire of exploration to the universe. [ # define Moon_ ] consists of 9 rotating kinect light installations. It presents different postures of moon shape, exerting new sense experiences. The audience is allowed to explore through various ways of looking and bring curiosity to the installation by watching from different angles. By thinking of the science spirit, once again, viewer can define and understand the concept of this work of their own. ※” # define” is a command code in software language which could define user’s own word. # define Moon_ is an uncompleted code, the underline which blinks at the end is like waiting for the viewers to define this installation themselves.
