Yesterday we visited the Art Science Museum for the Future World exhibition. It’s a permanent exhibition where only the light installations change over time. The exhibition is divided up in four narratives – Nature, Town, Park and Space.
The exhibition begins with a trip through nature. The first installation was an artwork with crows, rendered in light, that fly around the space Read more →
I visited the Art Science Museum exhibit – Future World: Where Art Meets Science. It featured many amazing interactive exhibits exploring four sections: nature, town, park and space. ‘Crows are Chased and the Chasing Crows are destined to be Chased as well, Transcending Space’ was the first immersive interactive art piece I had been in and the visuals made it feel Read more →
An art installation from iLight Festival 2017 that particularly interests me is the Moonflower by Yun.
Earth is a beautiful wonder and the Moonflower garden perfectly illustrate this feel. I believe every single one of us has to realise that beauty and stop destroying mother nature.
To add more on the sustainability aspect, none of these “flowers” would go to waste since Read more →
You Are What You Carry
In chapter 4 of Hidden in Plain Sight, Jan Chipchase wrote interesting insights about our carrying behaviour. The objects we often carry are based on multiple aspects like the range of distribution, the center of gravity and point of reflection. However, it ultimately boils down to survivability. Most of us happen to at least carry three Read more →
(Ultra) Light Network is a light installation that encourages participatory behavior with an audience. As audience members approach the structure, the intensity of the light increases. This encourages group interactivity, allowing multiple people to participate at once. The form of the structure allows members to walk underneath, allowing audience members to experience the installation from a variety of Read more →
Jan Chipchase’s chapter You are what you carry is a follow-up of his speech 10 years ago. Since his book Hidden in plane sights was published 6 years later in 2013, he mentioned more detailed approaches how people carry their belongings in the future. During his research over decades he found out, that there is a global commonality of how people live and what Read more →
In Chapter 4 of Jan Chipchase’s “Hidden in Plain Sight,” Chipchase discusses our habits and tendencies that we’ve developed in relationship to our every day products and how these concepts change as we transition into the digital realm. Chipchase defines two key concepts: the center of gravity, which are the places “where portable objects tend to cluster”, and the Read more →
Simplicity in communication is one of the greatest qualities of a strong design. The light installation Home reconnects each person to their idea of home and memories. While such an elementary term, the meaning of home goes much deeper than the physical place we live in. Our home is commonly associated with our past, where we come from and the Read more →
I did not attend the previous years’ iLight but from what I can see on the website, there are several installations which I find interesting:MoonFlower by Yun, Singapore
Based on my research, MoonFlower, by industrial designer Lee Yun Qin, was inspired by flowers (handmade by her mother). The modular flowers are powered by solar panel to create a luminescent display. What I Read more →
In the previous chapter, Chipchase did a research on the 3 important items in one’s bag — key, money, and mobile phone. In this chapter, Chipchase then move towards the research and study of “carrying behaviour”.
I’d agree to some of the behavioural study he shared in this chapter:
“On public transit in China and Brazil you’ll often see riders wearing backpacks Read more →
