Design exhibition ‘Bright Light Sight’ was organised as part of the 2nd sem. DDK course ‘Designing Interactive Artefacts’. Course goals were to articulate and prototype interactions, building on interaction design theories that deal with interaction gestalt and mobilising various prototyping platforms. The exhibited interactive lights spanned from raising curiosity to provoking surprise, and from evoking a sense of magic to playful exploration.
Course teachers: Laurens Boer and Jonas Fritsch

YOURS invites for an intimate interaction. Holding the silicon shaped ball creates a calming gradually increasing white light, that eventually leads to an magic pulse of coloured of lights.

Proximity Light is a light installation that lets the users explore the artifact driven by their curiosity. Due to its asymmetrical shape and the size of its 18 surfaces, the users are encouraged to interact with the installation through touch and proximity. The user will have to explore Proximity Light to find the places where he/she can leave a mark.

Inspired by embers from what once was a bonfire, Ember is an interactive lamp aiming at exploring continuums of time and modality. The user has to tilt the lamp to experience a short and vague twinkling that suddenly twinkles to a maximum intensity of light, to after a while slowly fade out. Tilting multiple times in a row invites for an experience of playfulness. Ember can create an atmospheric lighting context in which people gather for conversation while taking turns to tilt it and keeping the light alive.

ScaredyCat is a pillow to ease young children’s fear for the dark bedroom. Its light behaviour reflects this fear in its rapid twinkle. However upon picking up and cuddling with the pillow, the lights turn into a soothing light that slowly fades in and out.

Waving light is an omnipresent light that that fills the entire space once broken through the water. The light effects can be played much like a theremin to evoke a powerful, enchanting, and fairy-tale-like experience.

This bench senses how many people sit on it and where they sit to accordingly create a mild shift in lighting. As people gradually move closer, the light gradually changes the atmosphere to become more romantic…
