Event description
A demonstration of human-centred lighting that responds to human interaction.

About this Event

In a deliberate contrast to Sydney's Vivid festival; Luna aims to provide an intimate lighting experience which is centred on human interaction, particularly physical movement and gestures. This will be realised through the installation of motion-detecting smart lighting in the public green space of Civic Park over the course of the first week of the Hunter Innovation Festival.

The smart LEDs, planned to be installed within the trees of the park, will playfully change colour and strobe pattern in response to the public's nearby actions. Members of the public will be invited to explore and understand their role in the luminous environment through the differentiated motion-command relationships programmed to interact with the installed LED bulbs.

Both attendees of the festival and the general public will be encouraged to venture and play in the illuminated park through methods of placemaking and 'stray-finding'.

The project will work in activating former dark spaces of the city that would often be avoided due to their unattractive and unsafe qualities at night. If the project succeeds in achieving its goals, it is foreseen that Luna will be installed in other city spaces to contribute to the future of Newcastle’s increasingly vibrant night economy.

This event is part of the 2019 Hunter Innovation Festival. Check out what else is on the program at the Hunter Innovation Festival web page.
