Light Tunnel: Light Installation WAVEFRAME
WaveFrame is the first of a series of installations based on RGB LED tubes and a new software development line.
Installed for the DGTL festival in August 2016 in Barcelona, WaveFrame parasites a public sculpture formed by square arches for a total length of around 70 meters, creating a light tunnel where people could stand and pass by.
Using oscillator generated pixel textures, wave forms fill the led tubes with oscillating light. When delayed from one arch to the other, light creates perspective and time effects, reinforcing the idea of traveling inside a tunnel.

PRISMAtique was a temporary installation for the In Light In Indianapolis Light Festival along the canal downtown. The project seeks to investigate the fracturing of geometry and light through both material and interaction. Material selection was key to this exploration. Through the use of twin wall polycarbonate, light is refracted through the flutes of the material, disguising the origin of light. Each cell only contains one LED, yet through the layering of the extruding panels, the light begins to overlap and create a complex visual effect.
This fracturing of light is driven through the project’s interaction. As users trigger sensors in the piece, a sequence of associated LED’s are activated. Because the sequence is inherently random and the LED’s are only momentary, the sources are not apparent. However, the fractured path of users walking through the environment is clear. Each LED is filtered with a custom printed Mylar film that creates at gradient of light from cyan to magenta. The soffit blends white light and printed films to create an exciting three-dimensional atmosphere for users to experience.
Our work was among over 25 other projects from national and international artists, encouraging exploration and participation. This inaugural event lasted for two nights attracting thousands of people to the canal, providing provide unique and memorable experiences.
With 28,000 LEDs, It’s Lights! Lights! Lights! Action!
Strung across the Metropolitan Opera’s stage on more than two dozen parallel strands, from the pit to the back wall, 28,000 colorful LEDs will create an ever-changing, sometimes tempestuous sea for the Met’s new production of the Finnish composer Kaija Saariaho’s “L’Amour de Loin.
The lights are the centerpiece of the staging by Robert Lepage, who runs the production company Ex Machina and has directed theater, films, circuses and the Met’s much-debated production of Wagner’s “Ring” cycle. LEDs solve the problem of how to depict water onstage in an opera about the idealized love of a troubadour and a countess separated by the sea, and they provide a visual complement to Ms. Saariaho’s music, which is shimmering, colorful and luminous.

The Speed of Light transforms humble urban design fixtures into a playful rollercoaster of light where simple LED globes accompany visitors as they walk through the neighbourhood.
The installation, which is a playful twist on a static light pole, puts the emphasis on the light itself and its movement. The simplicity of the installation is captivating, whilst keeping a minimal appearance.
