Lichtsuchende

Murray-Rust, Dave and von Jungenfeld, Rocio (2014) Lichtsuchende. Item format: Robotic installation. (KAR id:78695)

Abstract

Lichtsuchende is an interactive installation, built using a society of biologically inspired, robotic creatures who exchange light as a source of energy and as a means of communication. The robotic creatures are reminiscent of sunflowers, turning their heads to face the sun in order to absorb its light. However, at the same time they also generate light in order to engage with others. Each creature is relatively small, but when a group of Lichtsuchende are brought together in an installation they form an expanding photo-kinetic social environment in which visitors can become immersed.
