Force Field, London

Force Field is the dynamic light installation I created with my students for the Gallery space Phase 2 in London.
The work was developed in collaboration with Arup staff and with students from the University of Applied Sciences in Amsterdam. The installation consists of 64 inter-dependent luminous rods forming a wave of changing colour. The installation mimics the forces and energies that flow through a building and acts like a magnetic field. A sensor allows the visitor to change the colour or to scan an Oyster card to create a personalised light show. The result is a compelling walk-through environment of inspring you with 16 million colour variations.
