Glow is an interactive light installation designed for the Burning Man festival. It is a touchable, playful, glowing structure. Three long branches form an interweaving structure, which is branching out into different directions, eventually ending by forming bunches of freely floating and glowing strings. With its appearance it is reminiscent to the willow tree which is a symbol of inspired imagination. Glow would be an experiential piece of art and one can experience it according to ones imagination.Glow as an artwork doesn’t intend to make a reference to any script that one would need to know which is not evident in it itself. Glow invites to engage with perceptual issues through experiencing it through its visual and tangible qualities.The installation will have the strongest impact in the night, as this would be time when it will reveal its qualities the most. Glow – is a captured light in the object. When the light is sparked at the bottom of the structure it runs through the paths created by the matter of plastic tubes and strings until eventually it escapes and disperse into the atmosphere, from that moment it becomes no more visible to the human eyes.
Glow is an object which embodies the constant flow of light. It tells a story about the light’s unique quality to make shapes visible to us. Glow is not designed as an object to be lit externally lit,it is an objects which glows itself. Glow traps the light for a moment and then light tries to escape it is being constantly mirrored, bouncing through the plastic it makes its shape visible.
