IN LIGHT OF TODAY
As part of The Copenhagen Light Festival 2022, Clever and VW City Studio asked Kollision to help design a light installation focusing on our common effort to accelerate the green transition. Through a number of design sessions we created a light sculpture visualising the current production of renewable energy as a percentage of the total energy production.
SWIPE TO TAKE PART
The installation pulled data from the Energy Data Service ambiently visualising the current percentage of renewable energy in the Danish electricity grid. Visitors both inside the VW City Studio and outside on the street could connect to the installation through their smartphone and induce energy through swiping gestures. The installation would react by changing mode, slowly charging as swipes were recieved. To literally underline the fact that working together will accelerate the green transition, the more visitors swiping at the same time the easier it was to fully charge the system returning a “Thank you for your energy”.
CREDITS
Kollision designed the physical installation that was produced as an assembly set by Design Smedien. All cables and controls are hidden inside the construction and black Martin Pixline fixtures were mounted onto the 24 black alu-profiles. The graphical lighting concept was designed in cooporation with Clever and all programming and interaction was handled by Kollision. The installation was on display in February 2022, lighting up the City Studio space nicely flanked by VW EV’s and Clever charging stations.
