Overview

Equilibrium is an intricate and highly detailed bespoke lighting installation, reflective of the sun and the moon’s intrinsic relationship. The light work acts as an ethereal timepiece, five minute cycles of communication with dramatic simulations building towards the hour, they finish with hourly crescendos of moving lights.

Goals

Onlookers are rewarded with a restored sense of energy and wellbeing as they witness the subtle ebb and flow of thousands of delicate illuminated orbs. The slow pulsing nature of the lights creates a subtle and calming feeling which fills the building and a celestial welcome on entering the space. This elegant piece takes on an ethereal presence as the lights are gently dimmed to reflect the calming of the hectic city day.

Process

Once again Acrylicize, with Ben Rousseau on staff, acted as artist and project managers and collaborated with Sign of the Times to assist with fabrication and installation.
