THE SEA OF LIGHTS

CHANGES IN PERSPECTIVE: WEB AND CAR VISUAL BRAND SEA OF LIGHTS

THE SEA OF LIGHTS SEEKS TO CREATE NOT SIMPLY A SINGLE FREEWAY INSTALLATION BUT A VISUAL IDENTITY FOR THE CITY OF WYNDHAM. THE DESIGN ENGAGES IN THE FIELD OF PARAMETRIC DESIGN BY EMPLOYING DIGITAL MAPPING. THE DECISION TO INVESTIGATE DIGITAL MAPPING STEAMED FROM A DESIRE TO KEEP THE PARAMETIRC RELATIONSHIPS ACTIVE. THE MAPPING EXPRESSED THROUGH THE COLOURS OF THE LIGHTS, REFLECTS THE MOVEMENT OF THE COMMUNITY. THIS TANGIBLE LINK TO WYNDHAM PROVIDES INFORMATION THAT IS BOTH INTERACTIVE AND DYNAMIC, THUS ENCOURAGING COUNTINUAL ENGAGMENT WITH THE PROJECT. SEA OF LIGHTS EXPLORES IDEAS OF DENSITY THROUGH THE LAYERING OF INDIVIDUAL ELEMENTS. BEYOND THE SITE A WEBSITE WILL OPERATE AS A MAJOR PLATFORM FORM WHICH TO VIEW THIS INSTALLATION, ENABLING IT TO BE ACCESSIBLE TO ALL. THE WEBSITE OFFERS A DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE OF THE PROJECT, RECORDING ITS CHANGES FROM ABOVE. VIEWED FORM A CAR SEA OF LIGHTS ENGAGES WITH THE LANDSCAPE OF THE SITE BY ENHANCING THE TOPOGRAPHY. IN A MORE COMMERICAL SENSE THE DISTICT IMAGREY OF SEA OF LIGHT CAN BE USED BY THE COUNCIL FOR PROMOTIONAL MATERIAL. SEA OF LIGHTS OFFERS MULTIPLE LAYERS OF INTERACTION. IT APPEALS TO A BRAOD CROSS SECTION OF the COMMUNITY, IS HIGHLY SUITED TO COMMERCIAL INTERSTS WHICH ALSO ENCOURAGING ENGORGEMENT WITH A COMPLEX AND EMERGING FIELD OF DESIGN DISCOURSE.

TRANSLATION OF INFORMATION MAPPING MOVEMENT IN WYNDHAM: TRAIN, CAR, PEOPLE

VARIATION OF DENSITY ACROSS INSTALLATION

OUR DESIGN RESPONSE • EXCITING & INNOVATIVE APPROACH TO SITE HIERACHY OF MAPPING

• VISUAL BRANDING

FIGURE 3 : DENSITY OF FORM AFTER THE MOUND

• EXISTENCE & INTERACTION BEYOND SITE

LAYERING OF INFORMATION: PLAN

CONSTRUCTION TECHNICAL PROCESS FABRICATION DOCUMENTS

LOGISTICS DOCUMENTATION FOR POSITIONING ON SITE

PEOPLE

CARS

TRAIN

SCHEDULES OF PRODUCTION AND GENERAL ELECTRICAL ASSEMBLY ON SITE

EDGES OF TRACK ARE POSITIONED ACCORDING TO COORDINATES 5000

PATTERN SELECTION ON POLES BASED ON THE NEED TO FILTER THE LIGHTS ACROSS THE POLES, A PATTERN WAS APPLIED PARAMETRICALLY ALONG THE SURFACE BASED ON THE VORONOI COMPONENT TO GENERATE A SEQUENCE OF OPENINGS WHICH DECREASE IN DENSITY

DIFFERENT STATES OF CHANGE

ON SITE ASSEMBLY IN ORDER TO ACCURATELY POSITION THE POLES, THEY ARE FIRST ASSEMBLED ONTO TRACKS AND THE EDGES OF THESE TRACKS ARE COORDINATED THROUGH GPS SYSTEMS ON SITE ACCORDING TO DIGITAL PLANS MADE ENSURING ACCURATE AND QUICK ASSEMBLY ON SITE

MATERIALS POLES : MOULDED ACRYLICS WHICH WILL BE FABRICATED OFF SITE IN A FACTORY ACCORDING TO SPECIFICATIONS

FIGURE 7: AS THE DESIGN IS BASED WITHIN A WIDE OPEN LANDSCAPE, EFFECTS OF SUNLIGHT CREATE INTERESTING SHADOW VARIATION ACROSS THE MODEL OVER A PERIOD OF TIME AND GENERATE INTEREST WHEN THE LIGHTS ARE NOT ON DURING THE DAY
