An interactable light sculpture created for research purposes by Team IGNITE. This installation will be showcased during GLOW Festival 2018 in Eindhoven.
For 2018 we will build this smaller installation. We do this to do research about the way people will interact with the sculpture and to optimize the building blocks at construction level and electronics level.
By combining our strengths, and with our sharp vision in mind, we created Hypar: a challenging shaped sculpture in the shape of a hyperbolic paraboloid with an interesting visitor-sculpture interaction. Hypar connects individuals with different backgrounds, cultures and expertise areas and lets everyone be a part of the creation of the highlight of the installation: a beautiful light show.
We are IGNITE, a student team from the Eindhoven University of Technology. With 22 students of the faculties Industrial Design and Built Environment, we want to create an interactive lighting installation for GLOW 2018 and 2019. We believe that the future of human work skills is a cross-cultural collaboration by people with different backgrounds and expertise areas. This triggered the establishment of IGNITE, which embraces and combines the different expertise areas of the students to create a strong light installation for GLOW 2018 and 2019.
