Light Waves

Ingrid Gabor

An interactive sculpture for reflecting and dispersing light through an indoor space. Both architectural and playful in nature, this piece celebrates the presence and power of light. The mirrored fragments follow passerbys by throwing light in their direction.

Individual mirrored pieces are laser-cut and beveled, and moved using servo motors behind the surface. A kinect sensor is used to detect people passing by and light sensors are used to calculate the angle of a light source. Light Waves is an interactive piece that explores the playful interaction of light and reflective surfaces.
