ECLIPSE

AN INTERACTIVE LIGHT INSTALLATION FEATURED IN THE HUMANSCALE GALLERY AS PART OF CLERKENWELL DESIGN WEEK.

LONDON, UK – 2013

'Eclipse' is an empowering collective light experience. A full solar eclipse is a rare collective occurrence and with 'Eclipse', Cinimod Studio proposed a play with nature by enabling the public to intercept and interact with the visual moments seen within an eclipse. The installation offered the power of the sun’s movement to be controlled by the visitor as he or she moved through the gallery space.

 

Light responded in real time to the movement of people throughout the space. As the visitor walked underneath, the lights too swirled around the rings, passing between each and following the visitor on their journey. 

The installation was based around nine of Cinimod Studio’s 'Pacifico Ring' interactive chandeliers. Each ring creates a circular band of animated light that mimics a solar eclipse.

 

Interactivity was orchestrated by thermal tracking cameras and bespoke software to create the immersive and playful experience.
