Swarming Light

rAndom International is a creative studio out of London with a mission to develop a new artistic vocabulary. Founded in 2002 by Stuart Wood, Flo Ortkrass and Hannes Koch the studios work fringes on art, design, science and architecture. The studio creates installations that re-interpret the nature of digital-based work and emphasizes on the interaction between human presence and the inanimate object, bringing the two into a powerful sense of aesthetic relation.

The ‘Swarm Light‘ is a light installation with a real ‚collective consciousness. It’s a contemporary example of how the arbitrary boundaries of fine and decorative art, design and utility are no longer of immediate aesthetic relevance. Sounds or movement captured as light and shadow create a type of participatory and performative synthesis that culminates in an instinctual perception of the space, rather than a cerebral judgment.

    This is good stuff. Imagine if you filled a larger and possibly more dense area with RGB LEDs at each node (for full color instead of monochrome) and ran 3d models (a person walking for instance) through it. I’d imagine it would be a pretty impressive and crazy looking hologram effect.
