Entry Description
An art installation with 4.5 meters stainless steel light sculpture with 3D minimal surfaces encased in an icosahedron form.

The sculpture was created by forging fabrications and 3D designs. One of the most complex parts of the artwork is the perimetric light cove that surrounds the polyhedral form, every contour lines was generative along the shape of the minimal surface and Platonic Solid form. The intricate cove system was created for a custom addressable white LED linear product with DMX control system. The shape of the polyhedron and laser cut geometric details are illuminated and accentuated by 2 concentric circular flooring up-lighting coves with addressable RGBW products.

The 2 parts electrical control system was integrated underneath the art installation and in a control room 50 meters away from it. The lighting system is also equipped with a photonic sensor hence the brightness will not be over glaring. The installation runs with pre-set sequences but the WIFI wireless control allows the user to control the artwork 100 meters away from it. This allows the client to control and project various lighting effects with ease creatively and flexibly.
