Light Leaks – Filling a room with projected light

Created by Kyle McDonald and Jonas Jongejan for the CLICK Festival 2013 in Helsingør, Denmark, Light Leaks is a light installation comprised of fifty mirror balls projecting controlled light in the room.

The general idea was to make use of found objects, in this case mirror balls, which as Kyle explains to CAN have a fairly chaotic structure compared to the perfect grid of a projected image we are accustomed to. Having been influenced by Kyle's work with Joanie Lemercier at ScreenLab in Manchester last year, where he learned how important peripheral vision can be in creating an immersive experience, Light Leaks is an attempt to fill a room with projected light in a way that can't be achieved with projectors alone.
