Light Study

Ellinor Sixtensdotter

I like the way in which the sun creates patterns that are constantly changing and that move in the room. Based on these effects I want to create patterns that are thought-provoking and full of feeling.

In order to be able to appreciate form we need a combination of light and dark – of contrasts. With light passing through an object I am able to influence the impression throughout the room. My aim, with this project, has been to develop my design process and to gain a greater understanding as to how one can make use of light. My study has sought to answer the question: “How can I create reflections and examine spatiality by illuminating an object”. In the process I have worked experimentally with both light and form. In my experiments I melted plastic and glass using a variety of techniques, lighting them with LEDs, projectors and sunlight at different times of day.   

My study has resulted in three sun catchers. These can be placed on the floor, hung from a wall, or mounted on the ceiling to catch the sunlight and to play with the surfaces surrounding it. The effect of the sunlight changes throughout the day depending on the weather and the position of the sun.
