Flylight (& other works)

Materials

Glass, custom made fittings, halogen, software, electronics

Technology

The movement of the light is programmed inspired on how Birds fly; no bird wants to be in the front. They keep changing.

Experience/Interaction

People are going to stare at the lights and follow them. It keeps changing. In that way it has the same effects as Julius Popp’s Bit.Fall in which people also are going to stare fascinated at what’s happening.

Opinion

What I like about this project is that it is actually so simple but nicely done and therefore it works so well. Light always attracts people for some reason.
