WalkingLight – a lighting creature comes to life

Light is a childish, playful creature: airy, natural and free. The light of stars spreads in the universe with the same ease and freedom. It extends to infinity without any effort or obstacles. There is a kind of unbelievable silence in light. One observing this unbelievable deep silence formed by light may be struck by the same silence like the soul of a child playing and listening. This ease, this silence and this entirety that is so natural for a child, is beauty itself. Observing the silence of light one can experience this beauty.

The object created by us is the impersonation of light. Light is materialized as it erupts from the lamp-shell and starts it journey. To actualize this in an object a technique was developed. With this technique we are able to create forms that strain on objects like a light and slim foil, yet maintaining a strong and self-maintaining structure. Hence an airy and insubstantial material is created being really suitable for actualizing the above philosophical object. The dematerialized kind of the foil is the materialized visualization of light. We did not form the object that spreads light. We formed light.

However, we would not be able to achieve this purpose without the present technological levels of light sources. LED allows us to put the light source at a place where it is not visible. Therefore the where about of the light is not perceived creating an effect as the light was materialized in itself. In addition, it is small and light enough to hold the LED technology, moreover, it does not heat up so much to melt the foil-like material. The plasterwork is made of a system of polymer and glue, which decomposes in nature and fits to the biological cycle.
