Lightwaves, is an 2D interactive light board involving thousands of LEDs, creates a dramatic and beautiful intervention through a walkway in London. The piece was designed to transform its environment through the interaction of light, colour and movement.

Motion sensors and cutting edge computer software generate complex sequences in response to the movements of passers by. The schematic eye-shape of the design might leave them wondering whether they are observing or being observed! When pedestrians trigger the motion sensors, pulses of light from both ends of the light-board follow them to the center of the underpass, activating the central circular design. When there are no moving subjects, the whole artwork runs through a slow and subtle spectrum of colour changing sequences.

The seductive anesthetics of light and color generates a positive and popular walkway for the visitors and inhabitants of this locality to use, and offers people the opportunity to experience an individual artwork/installation.
