Light Forest #2






Overview

Light Forest is an interactive art installation exhibited at ‘Illuminus Boston Arts Festival 2014’. It responds to people's location and movement and changes in forms and colors. A field comprised of individual ribbons is connected to a network of motors, which are triggered by a webcam detecting people's physical presence. Each ribbon spins in slightly different speed and as a whole scenery; Light Forest creates a series of waves floating in space. Light projection illuminates rotating ribbons and create dynamic optical aesthetic.
