Orkhēstra, 2014, (c) Wolfgang Leeb

Orkhēstra uses current developments in computational design, light technology and interaction design to redefine the boundaries of what is possible in designing responsive environments.

Inspired by underwater coral, the lighting animates the work to infer movement. Colour sequences change when a mobile camera flash is directed at the installation.  Orkhēstra was first shown at the 2014 Luminale in Frankfurt, for Sydney Design 2014 a modified version has been created. It’s a collaboration between teams from University of New South Wales, Sydney; Städelschule Architecture Class (SAC, Frankfurt); Media Architecture Institute (Vienna/Sydney) and Ludwig Maximillian University (Munich) in partnership with AHL LED Shenzhen.
