Swirl - Street Lighting

The installation explores the urban life as a constant pursuit of the unattainable. We use light as our material, like painting a graffiti on a wall. Swirl moves with the crowd and paints the alley with live images of light.

The Installation

Swirl was first presented as part of the Jerusalem Light Festival in one of the old city's alleys .

The installation senses the crowd and swirls as people pass it creating an interaction with human presence.

The Challenge

There were various challenges in the making of Swirl from designing its patternes, 3D printing various materials to investigate which one gave the most detailed light spreading and the motion mechanisms to detect human presence.

To Fablabil for providing us with 3D printing equipment in order to experiment and create Swirl!
