Quintessence Interactive Light Sculpture by Teddy Lo

Home > Winners > #65841


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Quintessence

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Interactive Light Sculpture

INSPIRATION:
The sculpture is inspired by the desire to develop an interactive sculpture for the 21st century and a need for positive spiritual evolution and enlightenment in all human beings in order for us to advance and live on this planet in harmony. The project is also inspired by an astral divine figure – Metatron, whose supreme stature inspires knowledge, ascension and spiritual growth. The white LED light acts as the supreme ray in a manner of a cosmic alchemy.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
One unique aspect for this sculpture is that it is a continuous linear metallic strip design which is featured with the longest linear LED product - CABLED which is also designed by the artist. Another unique aspect is the group interactivity for the sculpture is by utilising Internet of Things (IoT) and social media platform Instagram (IS) where mass amount of audience can control the visual and audio elements in real time by photo sharing.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The LED and soundscape remains on an Idle mode when the system is up. The 10 synchronised visual light sequences and audio combinations will change according to the interactive triggers from viewer's photo sharing on Instagram. Our custom program will analysis the photo submissions and then trigger the relevant visual and audio cues in real-time.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The Sculpture was exhibited in Hong Kong in Nov 23-25, 2017 during the Lumieres Hong Kong light festival

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Lighting Products and Lighting Projects Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The form of the sculpture were designed by hand drawing then transferred to 3D (simulation and structural designs) and back to 2D designs (metal stamping) for manufacturing, the sculpture was welded by hand piece by piece at the end. Also, the special LED linear strip was manufactured by implementing LED diodes on braided wire (patented) for elongation and most effective energy consumption. The customisation of interactive platform was done by custom coding and utilising simple hack on IoT platforms in creating the a mathematical program which would analyse the photo submissions by the viewers in selecting the audio and visual effects for the spectators. The system provides the freedom and game element for viewers to play and choose what they want to see and hear.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Octagon Stage 6 m x 6 m x 0.6 m Sculpture 6.5 m (H) x 6 m (W) Weight: 1980KG Dmx system by Ecue, Disguise magging program and custom code with Processing.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
My project always starts with a creative core concept hence the desire to create a visually dynamic and intuitive interactive light sculpture ws what came to mind. Then from my research on spirituality and technology, I realise there is a need for human evolution in complimenting with the current eruption of technologies, hence my research on a mystic figure which is relevant to light (Metatron) and is meaningful to the mass (Everyone recognise an Angel) became the catalyst of this visual and sound interactive designs. Moreover, I am riding on a popular social media platform Instagram for the interactivity hence this will give the spectators a sense of familiarity and in hope to engage them in connecting with the sculpture physically, psychologically and spiritually.

CHALLENGE:
The first creative challenge was the sculpture manufacturing, it was a major feat to figure out the process and overcome in making this continuous linear form based on a 3D drawing. The other challenge was to present a sculpture without a religious aspect thus more audience will be acceptive to it and the method of interactivity has taken us long considerations as we want it to be responsive and freedom of expression for the audience but with a projection platform in public space, we had to eliminate the chance for audience to project any political or vandalism from individuals through our LED lights or speakers.
