Light Matters

Light Spray

Posted in NEW Technology and Design, Nice things by studiomakelight on February 4, 2010

French designer, Aissa Logerot, developed ‘halo’ an LED light spray. Instead of spraying paint, it has an LED that sprays light. The LED’s brightness can be altered, and the colors are interchangeable.  Users simply have to shake it to recharge its power.

James Turrell at Wolfsburg

Posted in Nice things, Work Of Light by studiomakelight on December 9, 2009

It was really amazing to experience the work of James Turrell in Wolfsburg Kunstmuseum.

It was like floating in light/air, if there was no gravity.

Exhibition also included models, drawings and fotos of Roden Crater Project.

It is admirable that he put in so much time and work(over 30 years and $40m) in search of light.

Watch interview with James Turrell at Roden Crater Project…

luzinterruptus: Streets in Madrid

Posted in Nice things, Work Of Light by studiomakelight on December 1, 2009

Luzinterruptus is an anonymous artist collective based in Madrid. They conduct urban interventions in public spaces, using light as raw material.

They began to act on the streets of Madrid in late 2008 with the simple idea of putting a bright focal point to problems detected in the city that seem to pass unnoticed by the authorities and citizens.

They use LED, small light source, to light up small, often unnoticed, details in the streets.

Kiégő Izzók: CHB projection 2009

Posted in Nice things by studiomakelight on November 26, 2009

This work by Kiégő Izzók at CHB plays with architecture and darkness. By projecting site specific animation, the architectural space is completely distorted.

It questions our sub-conscious assumption of things we see.

Light-emitting fabric

Posted in NEW Technology and Design, Nice things by studiomakelight on November 24, 2009

Philips has developed new technology again, Lumalive.

Integrating LEDs into fabric but still keeps fabric’s flexibility. It is programable, i.e. you can upload your own animation on it.

It is very interesting progress in LED technolgy. However, on the application side, it seems limited to marketing use.

The Galaxy Dress

Posted in Nice things by studiomakelight on November 21, 2009

Since LED becomes more available and applicable, it is appearing in many different context. Here is a dress made from thousands of tiny full-colour LEDs.

The Galaxy Dress is the largest wearable display in the world and was created by designers Francesca Rosella and Ryan Genz from the London-based fashion company CuteCircuit. Read more…

Crystal Mesh by realities:united

Posted in Nice things by studiomakelight on November 10, 2009

Another project forwarded by Emu of Mesa.

The „screen“ facade is formed by a tessellated pattern made up by physical plastic bodies. A regular matrix of fluorescent lamps is superimposed onto (into) this idiosyncratic physical structure. That produces a display screen, which however is vividly distorted by the strong geometry of the individual light fixture and which is peppered by the regular perforations of the physical screen as well as by variations in the arrangements of the light fixture objects.

Burble London by Haque

Posted in Nice things by studiomakelight on November 10, 2009

Another project is contributed by Emu of Mesa.

The Burble is a massive structure reaching up towards the sky, composed of approximately 1000 extra-large helium balloons each of which contains microcontrollers and LEDs that create spectacular patterns of light across the surface of the structure. The public, both audience and performer, come together to control this immense rippling, glowing, bustling ‘Burble’… read more
