WHITEvoid creates LivingSculpture kinetic installation for Philips

The LivingSculpture kinetic installation was created by WHITEvoid as the center piece for the Philips trade fair stand at the Light+Building trade fair 2012 in Frankfurt.

The installation is composed of 24 movable triangular aluminium frames carrying 864 ultra thin glass OLEDs (organic light emitting diodes) all together. 24 of these movable frames form the hexagonal arrangement of the installation with a diameter of 6 meters. Computer controlled slowly changing and evolving movement and luminance patterns accent the OLED specific mirror and light surface texture.

digiStage – digital theater stage lighting system

DigiStage is WHITEvoids video projector based digital stage lighting system. The system was initially commissioned for the theater play “Fanny and Alexander” by theater director Sebastian Hartmann. The piece inspired by Ingmar Bergmans movie premiered in September 2011 at Leipzigs Central Theater.
WHITEvoid designed a projector based digital lighting system with integrated depth camera tracking to pixel map the whole stage area of about 120m2. Since the theater play used a flexible scene order, we enabled the lighting designer to select or deselect actors on the fly via remote. This way making them active or inactive as triggers for digital light follower effects and generative visuals. Multiple effects can be assigned to individual actors in almost infinite combinations.

WHITEvoid finishes the permanent light art installation “Crystal Chandelier” in Moscow

The Crystal Chandelier” is a permanent kinetic light art installation for the Tsvetnoy Central Market, a new department store in central Moscow.

The 14 meter wide and six meter deep hanging sculpture evokes the impression of a giant chandelier formed by 49 two meter high crystal shaped light elements. The installation constantly generates everchanging shape variations, movement and light animations with individual impressions for the day and night presentation.

At night when the building is closed the art piece falls into hybernation with only very few movements but a very strong pulsating heartbeat of light. This gives the Tsvetnoy market with its glass facade a unique landmark appeal in Moscows night scenery.
