Project 2: Aperture Installation

Beginning with light studies, we decided that we needed to control our site with the use of an aperture device. This manor of mechanical control gave us ample amount of working space for the device to shift in scale and complexity for the desired lighting effects. During the design process we learned that once the device (the panels) were placed into a chosen orientation according to sun path, we could bounce color to suggest movement in the aperture. This gave the aperture endless possibilities as to which colors were used and what intensities of color seen, according to angles the panels were set to in relation to the sun. Thus, the aperture became an ever changing, ever influenced installation.
