Mia Erlin: NEXUS

Responsive permanent light art installation.

Nexus is made of 14 copper towers which form a reactive light forest. It reacts to its environment generatively with passing reflections and integrated lighting. The perforated elements form a whole that represents the line-up of the nearby Hakametsä ridge forest. The perforations resemble the tiny wormholes of the tree trunks. The theme of the work is the encounter and connection between the built and the unbuilt. The shape of the piece adapts to the shape of the forest border of the ridge, while the technical implementation and movement of light represent the built environment, movement, and digitality. In the work, organic and inorganic, the built environment and the forest, combine in a form that reflects both permanence and movement at the same time. 

Which kind of light sources and what other materials and equipment are used?
