Amsterdam Light Festival 2016
Wisp are representing dancing flux of energy that are usually invisible.Like an aura, the particles flies around living species, especially plants and trees. The wisps are evolving, almost dancing around the trees in nice curves, like a ballet of lights.The glow they cast will play nicely with the volumes of the tree, revealing the branches as the light flows.They reveal the magic of nature, saying it still exists, even in the most common places of the urban space.

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.

Interactive light & sound installation
Luxonus is an interactive installation of light and sound developed thanks to a new partnership with two interesting actually north of Reggio Calabria: the Ecolandia Park and Face Festival.
The installation, replicable in other contexts and places, thanks to an ad hoc step sequencer programmed, allows the public to create music loops that turn into light choreography, in this case, on the ancient Forte Gullì. To every note played, a siaccende light to illuminate a portion of the facade.
If Gullì, the public, in the days before the festival, through a web interface, has been able to create, record, and send your contribution to music. All the collected works have been presented in the four evenings of the event.
In addition, during the days of the Festival, thanks to an on-site location, the public could interact directly with the installation by playing a specially programmed keyboard.
The multimedia exhibition was also used as a backdrop to the concerts scheduled.
Luxonus was open to all and active for the duration of the event.
