Light helps us perceive our environment. But what if light itself would start to perceive too?
This installation explores this question. Here, light beams are given a sense of touch, so that they can feel the surfaces they light up. By moving around, the light beams scan their environment and respond to what they encounter. What would they do when they encounter you?
This installation is inspired by the work of psychologist J.J. Gibson, who described the inseparable link between perception and movement. This work was supported by the Intelligent Lighting Institute of TU/e.
