[W]HOLE is an analog interactive light installation that invites participants to explore the physicality of their surroundings and discover the hidden symbolism within the installation using Anamorphic Perspective. The hidden symbol is representative of the Zodiac Chart, which is also referred to as The Circle of Life. During Lumière, Spring Equinox is also the start of the astrological New Year.

The interactive component is created through a method called Analog Interactivity, where the installation is static and it’s the movement of the viewer around the installation that brings the piece to life. The participant will discover the secret symbol through this movement to find a specific perspective. The lighting design for [W]HOLE uses a Quartz Real Time Clock to visually communicate time through different lenses. Different light patterns display the countdown to Spring Equinox and Summer Solstice. It also rotates through generative light patterns and the current time.

[W]HOLE aims to change the traditional role of the individual when interacting with technology by creating an interactive sculpture that allows the participant to create their own experience using anamorphic perspective.


To create a new interactive light installation for the light festival Lumière hosted by Ontario Place in Trillium Part along the Toronto Waterfront.
