AN ICONIC BUILDING
The greenhouses in the Botanical Gardens in Aarhus is an iconic structure visible from many areas of the city. The inflated structure has a beautiful ever changing transparency dependant of temperature, humidity and cloud cover. As part of Aarhus 2017 - European Capital of Culture, we created the project Plant a Light in collaboration with Væksthusene, Aarhus University, CAVI & Martin by HARMAN.
THE PRINCIPLE OF LIFE
The installation is, literally, a glowing tribute to nature's diversity and the basic principles of life, illustrating how life is constantly unfolding and evolving in nature: Birth and death, growth, change and transformation. By touching a glooming pillar installed in the park, visitors could create a charge that was transferred to the dome through sound and an impulse planting an organism of light. More than 15.000 lights were planted during the installation period from the 1st of November to the 9th of December, 2017.
OUR ROLE
In collaboration with the project partners we developed the concept through numerous workshop sessions, interactive prototypes and on site light tests to understand the nature of the dome as a whole as well as the cells making it up. We implemented the lighting design and the mapping of the 22.000 LEDs distributed along the steel structure. The project was controlled using Kollision’s MAP software.
