Nabana no Sato : Amazing Light Tunnel Made of Millions of LEDs in Japan

The Japanese once again prove that they know how to leave us in awe: a couple of days ago a spectacular 7 million light installation was opened in the Nabana no Sato botanical garden on the island of Nagashima in Kuwana.

What is justly called “the best light show in the country”, welcomes the visitors through the entry of a light-lit tunnel, where every tiny LED is enclosed into a botanically inspired light bulb. With the theme of this year’s project being “The Great Nature”, the gardens offer such installations as rainbows, auroras borealis and even a sunrise by the Mt. Fuji. A theme park usually focusing on flowers, will hold this Winter Illumination project till the end of March.

Recycled Bike Part Chandeliers Cast Spectacular Shadows

Ballroom Luminoso is a public art installation consisting of six sculptural chandeliers created by technologist Joe O’Connell and sculptor Blessing Hancock. Each luminous globe includes a custom designed LED light fixture encased in a spherical cage made of recycled bicycle parts that have been collected from bike co-ops from across the country. The artistic duo installed their spheres of light in a freeway underpass in San Antonio, Texas where they say it has “[rejuvenated] a forgotten space for the community.” If you like hanging lights that cast lively shadows, you might also be interested in checking out Forms in Nature, a chandelier that produces a forest of wild tree shadows

IRIS by HYBE 

Interactive installation is grid of transparent LCDs which display halftone and circular patterns whose display can emulate it’s viewers. A week ago, I covered a New Media exhibition in Seoul called ‘The Da Vinci Ideas Exhibition’ and was intrigued by this piece, hoping there would be a video of it. Well, the brilliant Creative Applications discovered it, which you can watch in the embed below:

Created by Korena collective HYBE, IRIS is a media canvas with matrix of conventional information display technology, that is a monochrome LCD.Through the phased opening and closing of circular black liquid crystal, IRIS can create various patterns and control the amount (size) of passing lights.
