Orchestrating the depth of light


Orchestrating the depth of light is an installation that uses LED diodes to create an interactive experience in the city.

The premiere took place at the Roßmarkt in Frankfurt’s downtown, where the installation integrated interactive technologies and architecture in a historical and commercial context.

The name of the installation explains its interactive concept. If a person triggers a camera flash in front of the installation, the LED lights will start to blink across the structure. The blinking starts close to the point where the flash was triggered and wander slowly away. This set-up mimics the natural reflexions of the light, i.e. orchestrates the depth of light.

Orchestrating the depth of light was created as part of the Luminale 2014 festival in collaboration with the Media Architecture Institute, the William Maximilian University’s Städelschule Architecture Class and AHL Media Facade.
