Entry Description

A 4.5 metre tall stainless steel icosahedron light sculpture art installation.

The sculpture was created by forging together fabrications and 3D designs. One of the most complex parts of the artwork are the parametric light contours surrounding the polyhedral form which are generated with minimal surfaces in a solid platonic form.

The contour system was created for a custom addressable white LED linear product with a DMX control system. The polyhedron and laser cut geometric details are illuminated and accentuated by two concentric circular lighting coves with addressable RGBW products.

Two electrical control systems are integrated underneath the installation and connected to a control room 50 meters away. The lighting system is also equipped with a photonic sensor so it won’t be overwhelmingly bright.

The installation runs on pre-set sequences with WI-FI allowing the user to control the artwork up to 100 meters away and project various lighting effects creatively and flexibly.
Company Description

My creative vision evolves around neo-transcendental art, the integration of spiritual ideas in the physical-scientific world. My work is inspired by current technologies and technological reality. It manifests in artistic expressions through light.
