Moving Light – Glow 2017

  Moving Light Glow 2017 Moving Light is the second iteration of the crowdflow research project at Glow. The main goal of the installation was to measure the influence of different light scenarios on the crowd flow. In cooperation with Philips Lighting, the Intelligent Lighting Institute, the Crowdflow Research group and others we conducted an never before seen research with over 500.000 unique participants. Studio Lucifer supported this research in the implementation and design of the research setup. Among other things we made sensor placement calculations, technical drawings and a 3D model of the full installation. Because the visitors of the Glow festival demand more than a simple research Studio Lucifer was also tasked with creating an art installation that would be part of the Moving Light installation. Together with Timo Lejeune, Sara Schippers and Matthijs Hoekstra we designed an interactive experience that would engage (and distract) the visitors of Glow.   Interactive Installation The installation lets the visitors move light in a dynamic and playful way. The shape of the interactive experience is inspired by the form of a tesseract or hypercube. A hypercube is a hypothetical concept of another spatial dimension, which in this installation is made dynamic […]

Influx – Glow 2016

Influx Glow 2016 When a light is turned on, the light itself starts to move and pushes away the darkness by flowing into every nook and cranny. During this process, the light doesn’t move freely but is influenced by the surfaces and edges of the area. Such an influence could never be possible without visual perception. Whenever a large group of people starts moving, you can also speak of a flow. Such crowd flows are also influenced by the physical surroundings, among which: light. At the Markthal, the Intelligent Lighting Institute of the University of Technology researches the influence of light on the behaviour of human beings. The Markthal is a Living Lab, not the traditionally hidden laboratory in the dark corners of the academy, but a lab in the real, living- and working environment of people. During GLOW 2016, the Markthal was all about the flow of people and the flow of light. The dynamic light patterns at the Markthal were designed for a research on how light affects the crowd flows. The results of the research which had neared half a million participants will be publicised soon.   TU/E INTELLIGENT LIGHTING INSTITUTE + STUDENTS Influx is an initiative of the TU/e […]
