Shadow Through Time (Final Project)

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.
