A generative site-specific installation for the unique architecture of the Darwin Ecosystem Project.
Permanent architectural light sculpture

VORTEX is a permanent light sculpture designed for the footbridge of the Darwin Ecosystem complex in Bordeaux. Twelve strips of LED light underline the generative and constructive lines of this hybrid architecture, whose scaffolding structure is clad in raw wood. Fusing organic materials and new technologies, the installation contributes to the dynamic energy of the site. Its lighting system is synced and visualizes the site's energy consumption.

Vortex echoes its surrounding environment: it captures the energy footprint of the Darwin Ecosystem Project and converts it into data, processed to generate light particles in real-time.
