Light Studio 1

Parsons The New School


Located on the 3rd floor of The New School University Center in New York City, this instillation was the first project created in the light studio for the Light Years Event.The aim behind it is to define each waste bin by the direction of the aligned lights, each ray highlighting the environmental story behind where do wastes end up? 

Within the chaos of trash order comes in with the direction of lights. Each opening is highlight by a light projection integrating an interaction between a user and the space. A reminder to where all this trash ends up in Landfills taking up more space, or polluting the ocean’s and finally destroying forests to create paper. Light here just merely acts as a water flow, highlighting the real issues.
