Concepts and Themes
Cultural Sustainability versus Environmental Sustainability
Not what’s lost but appreciating what is there already…re-appreciating our environment etc.
Mirror, abstracted geometric surfaces
Climate Change, pollution, and visualisation of these based on audience input (touch or footstep or proximity)
Messages too literal…what would a poetic way to communicate ideas be instead? What’s the balance between having a clear message to convey to audience yet creating an evocative experience?
Instead of being literal using recyclable materials, look into materials that can extend their use beyond the festival.
Example of Moonflower piece where audience takeaway or participation contributes to fundraising.
Cultural sustainability…preserving Singapore culture?
Emotional sustainability…stress and managing emotional well being
Interactivity – instead of walking up to something, what are some other kinetic mechanisms for interaction?
Interactive sensors – challenge is dealing with crowds (more than one person)
Audio – how to use it effectively
Alternative to the tree leaves – balloons expanding and contracting or some other more abstract concept.
Converting Kinetic energy to electrical energy (bicycle or ?)
Tackling awareness of overuse of plastic bags
How do you make people aware of the amount of energy they are producing and consuming?
Scalability of idea…and understanding user needs or expectations at the festival.
Meet with your group mates from IEM and develop a project proposal together for iLight. You might develop a new project or adapt one already in progress. Discuss and decide among your group.
Use the Concepts and Themes discussed in the class to help your brainstorming.
Post your ideas for project proposals onto OSS.
Here is a Technical Drawing from an SUTD proposal that you can reference.
