Digital Crystal: Swarovski at the Design Museum

05/09/2012 - 13/01/2013
Design Museum, London

Sunlight Video reimagines the principle behind many ubiquitous digital displays. Shining light through a set of crystals and colour filters, rAndom International create intriguing projected patterns.

 

 

Just like the transient representations seen by a human eye, these images are ephemeral, symbolising the nature of our own imagination and memories. This is in stark contrast to the physicality of the custom Swarovski lenses required to make them.

 

This installation is the first prototype for a work that will eventually channel direct sunlight through thousands of shutters and lenses to display both motion graphics and film.
