“Lumina” is an immersive installation that uses the medium of light and colour to create a three-dimensional optical illusive cocoon. Based on the concept of “light art and light painting” this playful installation invites the public to be submerged in a series of never-ending glowing canvases.
The installation uses LED UV black lights to highlight a chromatic ellipsoid shaped geometry. Spectators are placed in the midst of this luminaire, where their constant movement allows them to experience a 360-degree photo assemblage of different patterns and forms.
Our team includes Victor Perez-Amado (Assistant Professor of Architecture-UofT), Anton Skorishchenko (Exhibition Designer-UofT) and Robert Lee (Exhibition Fabricator-UofT) and Shamim Khedri (Master of Architecture Student-UofT).
The team is interested in exploring design conceptualization research, digital fabrication, material prototyping, and visualization processes. Having worked with a variety of different designs in the past, the team has developed skills in cnc machining, 3D printing, lighting design and custom woodworking throughout various projects such as “Obscura” at Ontario Place Light Festival, “Woggle Jungle” on King Street “Everyone is King: Design Build Competition”, Making Waves (2019) in Montreal, the Generative Pavilion (2018) in the Autodesk Lobby, the Winter Stations (2019) “Cavalcade” and most recently the New Circadia Exhibition at the University of Toronto John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape and Design.
