2015 → PMQ, Hong Kong“Spectra” is an interactive installation that controls light movement by detecting human walking path. The installation is in the shape of a distorted tunnel space, where kinetic shades are installed on top. When a visitor walks through the tunnel, each sensor would trigger its corresponding shades to rotate, beams of sunlight would then pass through the shade and shine in the tunnel.
This interaction generates a perceptual illusion of lights for visitors during their walking experience while twisting motion of the shades produces rhythmic waves throughout the tunnel. This responsive installation engages the visitor to observe and be aware of their existence by transitional space and light.
