The meridian light is a lamp that shows different RGB data extracted of 12 selected webcams around the globe. These webcams are continuously analysed and translated into a dynamic colour 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.
Material: perspex, aluminium, LED, electronics.
The meridian light was presented at het Klokgebouw during the Dutch Design Week 2015.
