The Palm Tree is triggered by a motion sensor, which lights up the LED powered tree as soon as someone moves in front of the piece. Continuous triggering (dancing, jumping, waving..) will soon start an animation: first in brightness of the tree, then the “disco mode” will engage. When interaction stops, or someone just passed by, the tree goes back to the dimmer state.
View from the garden at night
Flux Factory, in collaboration with the Long Island City Community Garden, has asked artists to develop installations and light-based work to temporarily transform and illuminate the area at night. Artists, builders, educators, urban theorists, covert geologists, and circuit benders have been working collectively to realize this project, through a series of group meetings and brainstorms. The driving force behind Nightlight is to create a space that is playful, engaging, and exciting to discover, while actively serving those who use the area after dark.
