Light Pollination Installation
Universal Assembly Unit unveils the digital art studio’s interactive sculpture for London Design Festival for Italian lighting brand iGuzzini. Commissioned by iGuzzini, Light Pollination, consists of 20,000 LED lights embedded on the ends of fibre-optic cables. These gently pulse with light to mimic the phenomenon of bioluminescence in nature.
Visitors will be invited to interact with the installation by shining a source of light – such as from a mobile phone – onto the sculpture. This will be detected by sensors embedded on its surface. The installation is powered by custom-built software that Universal Assembly Unit developed in-house.
iGuzzini is one of the world’s leading architectural lighting companies. It commissioned the installation to investigate how digital technology could enable lighting for the built environment to become more responsive in future.
