Week 2

(Maybe) A Concrete Smart Floor Lamp

Concrete is such a massive material, yet light is massless. I wanted to bring these two together and explore the possibilities of making a cast smart lamp that will follow shadowed and darker places utilizing sensors placed throughout a space.

I started with sketches from my notebook. It details my room and places that frequently need light. Right now, I have lamps in every corner, but I can usually only occupy one corner at a time.

These are 2D images generated with the MAKE2D function in Rhino.

The lamp will be able to rotate and pivot depending on which area needs the most light at a given moment. It will move naturally and slowly chase the darkness.
