This light is a 9-square grid section of a proposed installation of these cells. Each cell is held in place through a system of vertical structure and horizontal planes guiding the movement. The rotation from each servo is translated with wire through the structure to open the skin. A faceted mylar skin, designed through a geometric exploration of scoring and folding a single surface, clads each cell.
Each unit is outfit with a proximity sensor, servo and blue LED. In emptiness, the LEDs glow faintly inside. As someone approaches, the LED begins to glow brighter and the mylar skin opens, revealing the thin skeletal-like acrylic structure. As each person moves, the light follows, and as people gather, the more react and the brighter the space becomes.
