Cava Light Installation by Yingri Guan

Home > Winners > #93170


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Cava

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Light Installation

INSPIRATION:
This piece is inspired by the cave formations and different patterns in the caves. The cave generation is a long and iterative process. It's completely organic.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
This project is generated using mathematical methods to visualize cave patterns and formation. Caves are formed by water going through rocks and deposit minerals through this process. This piece expresses this formation process while abstract the relationship between the patterns in the cave and also different rocks.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
These lights could be installed in houses, interior spaces and so on. They can be installed singularly or in different numbers to accommodate what's the best spatially.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
This series of artwork spans across 6 months to complete and was created in the San Francisco Bay Area

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
This Cava series is realized through, first generating a series of images and vectors based on the analytical processes of the cave formations. Then those shapes are etched onto acrylic glass using a laser cutter. The final process is to assemble together the etched acrylic glass, LED lights and the pedestals.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Width 228 mm x Depth 62 mm x Height 508 mm

TAGS:
generative, abstract, light, LED, cave, imagination, design, art, visualization

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The initial research was carried out through traveling to the mountains and seeing the physical caves myself. I was totally in awe of how these rocks were formed. Afterward, a few sessions of online reading and coding explorations were carried out. Once I have figured out the situation, then mathematical formula was applied to the different values to figure out the actual cave objects.

CHALLENGE:
During the process, the most challenging aspect was how to abstract naturally occurring visual patterns and formations into an abstract mathematical formula that can be implemented and substitute using different values to create different images.
