Groupe Laps‘ luminous stick figures are made from LED strips and white Polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA), and the articulated joints are made of stainless steel. Keeping sustainability at the heart of the artwork, Groupe Laps uses LED light for each of their performances, re-using the same materials every time.

Key Frames is more than just an illuminating light installation – the figures also serve as stand-alone sculptures demonstrating various positions of the human body. The team has also created a short 3D movie to present the live performance, and the installation was most recently featured at iLight Marina in Singapore.
