Light Flower is an interactive kinetic lighting installation exploring the relationship between traditional crafts and contemporary design possibilities, responding to the growing interest in craftsmanship combined with new digitally driven production method, as a response to today’s fast paced society.
The flower units are made from fabric and bamboo, combined with facial recognition sensors through which the audience can trigger flower movement. The craft were studied under some of Hong Kong’s remaining traditional craft masters.
