Lights On! was a performance and permanent installation for the facade of the new Ars Electronica museum.

Working with Zachary Lieberman and Joel Gethin Lewis from YesYesNo and musician Daito Manabe, I designed lighting patterns and wrote software to control over 1000 architectural lighting fixtures installed on the facade of the new Ars Electronica museum.

Lights On! consisted of both performance and a permanent installation components. The performance, featuring light patterns synchronised to music especially composed for the piece by Daito Manabe, premiered just before midnight on New Year's Eve, and was repeated for the Ars Electronica Museum opening celebrations on Jan 2 and 3. The installation component features a simulated planetary system honouring the scientist and astronomer Johannes Kepler, and will run throughout 2009.

Made with openFrameworks.
