THE COMMITTEE OF SLEEP

interactive light installation

 The installation, showcased in a solo-exhibition in the MAK -Museum of Applied Arts, Vienna - makes use of the principle of ‘energy scavenging,’ which means the capturing of surplus energy from living organisms. The expansive installation, which is based on structural elements made of hand-crafted paper, is equipped with organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs). The objects absorb energy released by the movement of visitors in the exhibition room and transmit it to the light diodes. The lighting situation thus varies with the frequency of visitors in the exhibition.
