Light Forest is an interactive art installation exhibited at ‘Illuminus Boston Arts Festival 2014’. It responds to people's location and movement and changes in forms and colors. A field comprised of individual ribbons is connected to a network of motors, which are triggered by a webcam detecting people's physical presence. Each ribbon spins in slightly different speed and as a whole scenery; Light Forest creates a series of waves floating in space. Light projection illuminates rotating ribbons and create dynamic optical aesthetic.
‘Illuminus Boston’ was a Boston’s first free night time festival to provoke, inspire and celebrate creativity in art, culture and community in the city of Boston. The committee wanted art installations for this festival to transform Boston’s streetscapes into a vibrant and energetic urban canvas. As a part of this event, Light Forest provided the public with an interactive art installation to encourage all the people present to not only appreciate art works but actively participate in the festival.
Most of process of Light Forest including design, fabrication (wood works and on-site installation), projection images and programming was produced by our team. However, our team closely worked with the committee of ‘Illuminus Boston Arts Festival’ to ensure projection equipment, location and sponsored budget.

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
