Electric Light Evolution

Audiovisual installation

The audiovisual installation created by the means of 3D projection mapping tells the history of electricity and light sources.

Idea of the sculpture was inspired by the motif of the stairs, which seemed conceptually appropriate to express the idea of evolution of electric lights. Installation begins with images of a transformer vault providing power; it continues with the addition of incandescent lamp elements, then motives of newer fluorescent tubes, followed by light emitting diodes (LEDs) and circuit diagrams, until everything ends with an animation of possible light sources of the future. The music, having dictated the rhythm of images and influenced the whole visual development, plays an extraordinary special part here.
