“Nymphéas” – kinetic light installation by VOLNA

The kinetic light installation “Nymphéas” is inspired by the lyrical images of ponds overgrown with water lilies by whose side poets and artists have spent countless hours in contemplation of clean, cold flowers.

The flower buds move gently in an optically expansive space, shimmering with different colors. The reflections of the flowers and the people observing them are compounded, creating a sense of submersion into the depths of the surreal pond.

The installation consists of 37 kinetic light modules mounted on a steel frame and covered with triplex glass. Each module consists of a “flower” operated by custom-designed mechanisms. For this installation, a unique set of 3D-printed details and a custom Art-Net controller were created, allowing the installation to be controlled externally with a standard lighting console or third-party software. The whole circular “pond” is 4.85m in diameter and 0.6m in height (elevated 0.15m from the ground).

“Nympheas” has already been installed in a permanent exhibition space. However, as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, it has not yet been presented to the public.

everyoneishappy: @overtones this would require 4D noise, which is possible but not implemented in Fieldtrip

overtones: Hi! SF2D has Time & DomainOffset inputs, but SF3D only DomainOffset. Is there a way to use Time in SF3D or it makes no sense? Thx
