EXPLODED GLOBE

AN OUTDOOR INTERACTIVE LIGHTING INSTALLATION TO LAUNCH THE RESTAURANT AND BAR DESIGN AWARDS.

LONDON, UK – 2008

Conceived as an exploded blank canvas, the huge 'exploded globe of light' was suspended from the trees over London’s famed Hoxton Square and was interactively controlled by the guests.

 

The artwork was inspired by the Restaurant and Bar Design Awards’ belief that "design excellence is up to you", and by using cutting edge technologies, the innovative lighting installation was brought to life by the guests’ collaborative interaction who used special punch cards to choreograph their own colour animations. ​

 

The Globe was constructed with a structural aluminium core and ribs, to which panels of Foamalux were fixed. An array of individually addressable Martin Professional LED fixtures provided the full colour illumination to the globe and created the unique dappled light projections across Hoxton Square. A bespoke software programme, coded by Cinimod Studio in VVVV, controlled the overall installation.
