This highly conceptual project by Benjamin Pannatier explores the adaptation of light transmission through the application of liquids. In the interim space of two glass panels, a combination of immiscible liquids and air form bubbles of variable size and transparency. The manipulation of the bubble size and location results in a shading system that can be adapted to individual user demands.

Living Lights by Jessica Stürmer

The Expo world fair in 2012, held in Yeosu, South Korea focused on the theme “The Living Ocean and Coast”. Jessica Stürmer transformed this idea into an interactive installation for the world expo. Her project aims to generate a perceptible experience of underwater life. In particular, she focussed on one aspect strongly associated with oceanic life, fish swarms. A broad dark room is filled with a three dimensional grid of LED-lights that display an abstract image of moving fish. As visitors move through the installation they are surrounded by the simulation and interact with it through their movements within the space.

In 2011, a group of 13 ILEK_Lab students designed and realized an interactive installation for the Blickfang design fair in Stuttgart. Inspired by the image of dropping rain and clouds, a set of slim vertical elements was installed above the lounge space of the fair. The single elements, called kumos (a Japanese word for spider and also for cloud), open up and expand horizontally into a spider-like configuration representing a cloud. In total, the 30 elements as a system are capable of generating complex and dynamic motion patterns and thus provide a continuous variation of the spatial appearance.
