Ascent – Bends, fractures, and blurs of the phenomenon of light

Created by London based studio Nocte, Ascent is interactive installation intended to blur and at the same time highlights its surroundings. Using nature as a basis for aesthetic, Ascent is a mesmerising sight of smooth lines and soft light – a sculpture that creates a harmonious relationship between human aesthetic and natural landscape.

The structure was built using 15mm aluminium profile cut to size and joined together with custom 3d printed joints. To fabricate the structure the team worked together with Wyliewood who helped us to push a relatively complex design into production. The wireframe structure was covered with 60m of RGB led strips, for this project the team used high density strips with 144 leds per meter for a total of more than 8500 pixels individually addressable. The strips were controlled using 4 Pixel Pusher devices, the signal ran over a network refreshing the strips at 60fps.
