Group 4 iLight concept proposal 2
Inspired by artist Akinori Goto’s dancing light sculpture, we aim to focus on the concept of “regeneration of energy and circle of life”. The sculpture paints a narrative of a life cycle frame by frame. As the sculpture spins, the frames join together to illustrate a story. Each time, there will be one user that spins it by just pushing the zoetrope, and multiple viewers can view it at the same time.

Theme: Lifecycle, regeneration
# of Users: 1 user interact with it each time and multiple viewers at the same time
Input: Users just need to push it and it will start spinning
Output: Lights and Sound
Possible Materials: Acrylic or 3D print, Zoetrope-like sculpture
Current questions and future considerations:
- Scale of the sculpture, it if is too small it might be feasible
- Design of each frame: might need a lot of manpower to illustrate the story
- Should the narrative be more “literal” hence easy to understand, or should it be more open for interpretation?
- How to get users to understand the concept relating to sustainability better
One thought on “Group 4 – iLight Proposal 2”
Sounds like an interesting idea. What will you do to create something original that is from your group? How will you test it to see if it’s feasible?
