Lighting Engines (2020)

From the Brief: “We are beings that use light to understand the world we live in. The natural world has light as a part of it, and for many years we only knew the use of one natural source; the sun. In time we learned to make our own built-light, fire. Since then we’ve developed many other ways to generate and harness light. Artificial light is the norm for much of our world, easing our use of the night, illuminating spaces which natural light can never reach. Our lighting mediates our sense of time and space, thus it places a major role in our lives. As designers, we create important objects like lamps, that can provide people with beauty and enjoyment in combination with utility.”

For this project, I made an object that produced light. I was assigned the context of lighting a living room.
