Challenge #4: Erect a memorial
Group: Zhoujian Sheng, Tingyu Zhang
What is Light Pollution?
“Light pollution is the presence of anthropogenic and artificial light in the night environment. It is exacerbated by excessive, misdirected or obtrusive use of light, but even carefully used light fundamentally alters natural conditions. As a major side-effect of urbanization, it is blamed for compromising health, disrupting ecosystems and spoiling aesthetic environments.” How might we make an interactive installation to help people understand that human's activities influence the nature resources and finally influence themselves ?
Our design named "Over light".
The stone inside represents the nature resources, the small spots light which embraced the stone represent the stars. When people uses more light, it will influence the stars and finally influence themshelves.
This interactive memorial should be set in the dark space that the small “star” lightings will light. If people getting closer and closer , the star lightings will become darker and darker and the stone will become more and more bright which will blind your eyes.
