Lumina is a LED light design which inspects poetic understanding and minimalism.

Lumina explores the distinction between analogue and the digital as a metaphor for human ability for poetic understanding, as opposed to the cold, abstract mathematics of data. Lumina consists of 1500 neo-pixel. With customized programme, it could play low resolution images in live-time. The pixelated representations are of such low resolution as to place them at the threshold of recognition. Typically, the viewer will not instantly recognize what is displayed, it is only after a few seconds of observation that his/her brain will reconstitute the image into a complete, meaningful idea. The experience, which partly relies on our voyeuristic tendencies, feels highly poetic and strangely personal, as if we were the only one to have decoded the images.

微光是探索诗意解读以及极简主义的LED灯光艺术设计。

暧昧的类比与精准的数字化之间的区别,恰好代表了人类对于事物的诗意解读本能与冰冷抽象的数据程式化运算之间的冲撞。微光由1500个可编程的LED灯组成,可播放处于辨识度阀值的低分辨率图片。一般而言,观者不会立即辨认出图片信息。在经过几秒钟的思考之后,个体独特的经历与想象力会为这幅图片创造出一份独一无二的解读。这份经历,或许部分依赖于人类与身俱来的偷窥欲,带着一份奇异的私密,但同时又引出一份诗意的畅想,仿佛我们才是写下那行诗句的人。
