The tech project is a continuation of the summer investigation of form communicated through glow. The materials and methods will be similar but the challenge this time is to build it to the scale of a few storefronts on Hollywood Blvd. This time the lighting will also feature an interactive component, where the lights will be programmed to have a behavior. Due to the cost of the equipment the behavior will most likely be limited to a breathing (like when a computer goes to sleep) or blinking.
After choosing a minimal surface geometry to populate the window we started investigating a lattice assembly that can change to accommodate a second system and lighting infrastructure as well as have interior rigidity .
