Webcams positioned around the globe capture dynamic skies and transfer images to the Meridian Light, a LED driven light-object. These colours are continuously analysed and translated into a dynamic light experience. The shape of the light object is based on the meridians of our planet. Following the earth’s rotation, the Meridian Light cycles through webcam feeds of 12 time zones in two hour intervals. That allows you to experience spectrums of different sunsets, from soft pastel tones to vibrant colours. A personal touch? It is also possible to select a location of your choice via the app.
Material: perspex, aluminium, LED, electronics.
The meridian light was presented at het Klokgebouw during the Dutch Design Week 2015.
