SPONSORED BY DIANNE & J. DAVID ROSENBERG
Impulse is an installation of interactive, acoustic, illuminated seesaws that respond and transform when in motion. The seesaws form units of light and sound that can be activated and played by the public to create a temporal, ever-changing event. Impulse embodies ideas of serialism, repetition, and variation to produce zones of intensity and calm within a large public space.
ABOUT LATERAL OFFICE
Lateral Office, founded in 2003 by Lola Sheppard and Mason White, is an experimental design practice that operates at the intersection of architecture, landscape, and urbanism. The studio sees architecture as something to pose and respond to complex, urgent questions in the built environment, engaging in the wider context and climate of a project–social, ecological, or political. Recent work focuses on powerful design relationships between public realm, infrastructure, and the environment.
ABOUT CS DESIGN
CS DESIGN was formed in 2008 to fill the need for local, non-partial, lighting design consultation in the field of architecture, art and urban design. Approaching lighting design from the perspective of the architect, CS Design seeks to complement and elevate architectural designs with a simple and integrated approach. Their expertise includes electric lighting specification, custom fixture design, daylighting in buildings, and energy efficiency. Recent work has focused on exploring how light can shift ones experience of an object or place.
Together, Lateral Office and CS Design have created a number of award-winning interactive installations which have toured Europe and North America.
