Interactive Multi Colored LED Light Benches by .
The Lighting Benches take us on a sensorial journay into the heart of an electrical storm. Each bench is portayed as a bolt of lighting that strikes the ground with fractured yet symmetrical geometry. Each piece is made of translucent resin in luminous shades of blue. Below the surface of each bench is a hidden network of sensors that detects the electrical charges within the human body. As the electricity inside our body is sensed, the bench responds with a visual display of flickering light. When the body interacts with the surface, it is followed by a trail of light that delights the senses and sparks the imagination.
The lighting Benches were commisined by the Mississippi Children’s Museum. This project was inspired by a child’s ability to turn a fuctional world into an imaginative journey.
