Lighting and Interactions

This piece looks at the interactions our shadows have with the light. It creates the pixelated images from whoever stands behind the screen, this would be an awesome way for the public to interact with our work.

This piece i think works well with the subtlety of the colours used, becoming ornamental pieces within their own density. Appealing to us with the use of colour and delicacy.

I think this is a great way to have a straight forward lighting system that could potentially compliment our other ideas of light in the musical scheme. Just a way to express beauty with lighting.

Just a couple of quick sketch/diagram ideas for our “musical tent” idea.

I thought about the ideas of having harp strings that can be walked through/underneath as another way of public interaction, and play the harp strings from underneath the vertical tube like shape.

Also thought about the idea of having drums that are wired with coloured/uncoloured lights inside the drum that turn on/off as you hit them, Maybe this could be activated by the drum top itself or as one of the “clapping lights” that already exist.

We could also have some lanterns or something along the top of the “tent” for simple lighting, even just a dim steady lighting if this is all that is needed, maybe referring back to the earlier used balloons.

Suggestions

So this is the first thing I started doing. The crossing in the strings shows an interesting appearance. For the lighting, lights could be placed underneath in a way that it would light up the “wall” from bottom to top.

This is another idea that I tried to test  with light into the model. Although it’s not that clear I think we can get a sense of what it would look like with the light incorporated in the strings. It’s interesting to see the shadows that are created by the strings.

I thought the strings could be either hanging on the ceiling and maybe we could have a series of them or they could be diagonally placed along the wall.
