Light is always perceived as a static element, and we want to break that boundary and explore light in a more vivid vision. The project is to use light as a medium of art through motion and refraction that reveals tangible and natural phenomena like “Ebb and flow”, which is to create a recurrent/ rhythmical pattern of coming and going or decline and regrowth through light.

Concept Development & Proposal

The project uses light as an art medium to transform and express the motion of water.

The project was iterated through different schematic designs and eventually articulated as a suspended kinetic light sculpture.
