The pyramids are made from cardboard and reflective emergency blankets. Low-energy LEDs were then embedded into the geometrical pieces, which are hooked up on either end of the 10′ x 26′ installation to motion sensors. The entire project was suspended in the heart of the Scuola di Architettura e Società and opened up to students on the workshop’s closing night. We can hear the collective “wow” coming from the crowd once the students experienced how their movement changed the light and shadow coming from the electrified ceiling!
