Illuminated Path

Yeseul Song

A light bulb that finds you and illuminates your way.


A single light bulb hangs from a mechanized rail watches for individuals moving through the space using a motion detection and tracking system. When the system finds an individual, the individual's location is used to control a motor which is attached to timing belts. The timing belts control a light bulb that is hanging from the rail which are fastened to the ceilings. This process causes the hanging light bulb to accompany the individual and provide them with an illuminated path.
