Lumi Algae is a lamp that turns the real-time movement of algae under a microscope into the movement of light. The color and its position of algae will be analyzed using a webcam microscope and tracking.js, which will then be sent to Arduino to control the brightness and fading of four lights.
The desk lamp responsively changes according to the sun and it moves between bright cool light to dark yellow light based on the movement of the sun and the circadian cycle. The lamp monitor the ambient brightness and adapts to the environment around you so that you do not feel any glare on your eyes.
Although we are influenced by the light environment we experience everyday, we rarely take a close look at the nuances in those lighting moments.
Shadow through time is a 24-hour light fixture which highlights the change in shadow compositions through time.
The square shaped fixture contains four moving elastic bands lined up horizontally and four light sources in four corners. The light sources are mapped according to the direction of sunlight throughout the day. The elastic bands act as as a clock rotating 180 degrees in 12 hours and back.
