MODEL FOR A SUSPENDED STORM  

2013. IESNY Student Lighting Competition. New York. Lighting installation

The shape of the storm is represented with a stereotomy of 12 acrylic sheets that have an   organic pattern etched in the form of a spiral. Each one of these is rotated and staggered to create the 3D volume and the effect of  movement.

The   installation is illuminated with and LED strip concealed in an acrylic tube to light the edges of each sheet and reflect the light through the etchings.

This piece won 3rd place in the IESNY Lighting Student Competition. 2013

Inspired by the musical piece  “Weather Storm” 
by Craig Armstrong 

The idea behind this light installation was to create an image of a storm suspended in time. A static representation of the movement and dynamism of the melody.
