Lightweave

CAN OUR URBAN ENVIRONMENTS BECOME SENTIENT PARTICIPANTS IN OUR DAILY LIVES? CAN THESE IMMERSIVE SPACES ACTIVATE OTHERWISE NEGLECTED VOIDS?

Lightweave is a permanent public lighting installation located in Washington DC’s NOMA district. It translates ambient sounds from the city into dynamic auroras of patterned LED light. Slowly changing effects are activated by the noise and vibration of passing trains, cars and other sounds from the neighborhood. Lightweave animates the underpass and creates a meditative and interactive urban experience.
