Continuing the tradition of the past years as part of GLOW, Heuvel shopping center presents the ‘Dome of Light’ installation, created by Eindhoven light architect Har Hollands.
The installation consists of 121 light-translucent tubes. Each tube is hung from a cable and can be positioned at various heights by an electric motor. This cable also supplies the current that energizes the various LED lights in each tube to produce a palette of colors.
The program, which runs on a central computer, controls all the light effects and tube movements. The movements and light effects, which are directly generated by the tubes, are reflected back by the glass panels in the dome to create a lively play of moving color patterns. The perceived shape of the different reflected patterns changes as the visitor changes position under the light sculpture
