‘Lux Nova’ by Siiku lets the light shine out

An artificially organic microcosmos as an interactive space, where humans are centerstage in an everchanging experiential environment.

LUX NOVA was commisioned by Roskilde Cathedral for Lysfest2020.

The UNESCO World Heritage Site built from 1175 onwards and containing 40 royal graves and sarcophaguses, is particularly interesting from an architectural perspective due to its large windows facing the church square. These windows held great importance by letting the divine light into the church space.

LUX NOVA redirects and lets the light shine out from the Cathedral onto the church square, into the streets, to and upon the people.

Materials: Moss, Trametes fungi, Aluminum, WS2812B LED strips, ESP8266 microchips, Teensy 3.2 microchip, Robe Spiider LED WashBeam.
