U.V.A. :: canopy + connection



Inspired by the experience of walking through the dappled light of a forest, Canopy is a 90m long light sculpture spanning the front façade of the building, using mass production and precise fabrication to evoke and reflect the nature. Thousands of identical modules, their form abstracted from the geometry of leaves, are organized in a non-repeating growth pattern.

During the day, apertures in the modules filter natural light to the street below. After dusk, particles of artificial light are born, navigate through the grid and die, their survival determined by regions of energy sweeping across the structure. The result simultaneously recalls the activity of cells within a leaf, leaves in a forest canopy, or a city seen from the air.

Materials: powder coated steel, anodised aluminium, injection moulded polycarbonate, LED, Code
Dimensions: 90 x 3m

Connection is a responsive light installation. The work consists of an array of vertical luminaires integrated into a pedestrian bridge, used to create oscillations of colour and geometry based on human movement. This transforms the rigid structure of the bridge into a fluid entity that transmits the rhythm of the crowd to its surroundings.

Materials: Aluminium Extrusions, LED, Lensing, Custom Electronics, Code
