Interactive Installation // Art Exhibition // Shape-changing Sculpture
Morgenhilsner [Morning Greetings] is an interactive installation that explores shape-changes and light. The installation was installed at DIAS, Digital Interactive Art Space, at Vallensbæk Station. A large window on the station is facing east, providing the station’s passengers with morning light. However, the Danish winter is often both dark and cold, and seeing how the installation would be exhibited in this time of the year, we took this absence of light as the main inspiration for Morgenhilsner. We wanted to bring back the morning light, but presenting it in a new and more imaginative way.
The installation consists of four pyramids hanging from the ceiling with the tip down. The floor below Morgenhilsner is divided into invisible sections. Movement within these sections is detected with a Kinect and result in changes in the installation’s form. The side that is directly above the viewer’s head opens and the light in that specific pyramid increases in intensity.
