This pedagogy of experiments seeks to accurately model and manufacture a new form of lighting fixtures and framework around architectural lighting. This is an ongoing project, so please be expecting more updates and materials.
These new fixtures are made of polyester resin and a particle distribution called a colloid. Unlike traditional light bulb models, rather than having illumination come from individual lighting fixtures that are wired to a common electric source, we are using one lighting source in the form of a laser to illuminate each fixture.
By using controlled resin casting alongside numerical simulation of structured colloids, we can program and evaluate different substances held in distribution with a 9 dimensionality lighting model. This allows us to understand the type of lighting output that can be achieved with various materials and shapes, as well as predict the aesthetic properties that these lighting sources may allow us. From various colors to different glittery reflects, this framework allows both technical and artistic framework.
