Kit Webster — Symbiotica (1:30)

Geometric light sculpture commissioned by architects The Buchan Group for the AXF Group

Symbiotica is a geometric light sculpture expressing a symbiosis of ecology and technology, with connotations of both natural abode and high-tech home developed for the Imperial Doncaster apartment complex in Melbourne. The work was commissioned by architects The Buchan Group for the AXF Group.

Illuminated by full-colour 2D mapped LED pixels which are choreographed to systematically allow animations to flow across its surface, the sculpture mimics a living presence, welcoming the residents as they arrive home at night and providing a luminescent beacon for the community. The pixels positioned throughout the sculpture are fully programmable, allowing the work to fluidly change appearance, daily and seasonally.

While highly technological in its construction and expression, it’s animated light movements flow sporadically and organically. The deconstructivist geometric neural design and programmed illumination suggest visual references to an interconnected ecosystem, an abstract reflection of our networked existence.
