Entry Description

One of the central elements is like a giant stork's nest - the brightest and most potent Ukrainian symbol. With the help of different principles of lighting from the inside, we showed silhouettes of shadows from the branches to the floor. We supplemented this concept with a projection on the wall, where the chicks grow up, fly away for the winter, and then return home. This symbolizes the cycle of life, when a person leaves his homeland but does not forget his native land, reaches for it, and eventually returns to it.

With media projections on the wall, we convey fundamental values and ethnic codes.

We carefully worked out the percentages of the ratio of brightness, intensity, and accentuation of light for day and night lighting. We tied all lighting elements into a single control system that allows changing scenarios, providing a comfortable, light atmosphere corresponding to human biorhythms. Scenario changes occur automatically on a schedule, with a smooth transition from morning mode to daytime, evening, and late night.
