You Fade to Light is an interactive art piece featuring mirrors and light designed by rAndom International.
About the project “You fade to light”, be directed to read more:
‚ÄėYou Fade To Light‚Äô is is an interactive media installation that provokes a kinesthetic dialogue between the viewer and their very own mirror image. The work encourages the audience to physically and intuitively experience the creation of light itself.
Seemingly a large wall with myriads of mirrors, the¬†installation is awakened by movement and transforms the reflection¬†of the viewer into light.
While a classic analogue mirror passively¬†reflects its surroundings, You Fade To Light dynamically visualises¬†those who stand in front of it.
When the individual mirrors see movement, they react to it¬†and gradually fade from a perfect mirror finish into a radiating¬†surface of pure light. You Fade To Light has been conceived by¬†rAndom international and is made of hundreds of unique OLEDs¬†(organic light emitting diodes), a future light source currently¬†developed by Philips in Aachen, Germany.
The installation has¬†recently been shown in the collection of the Neue Sammlung of the¬†Pinakothek der Moderne / International Design Museum in Munich /¬†Germany.
For the documentation of the installation, rAndom¬†International and Philips Lumiblade commissioned Laila Diallo to¬†develop a short choreography as a response to the piece, which was¬†performed by Diallo and Khamlane Halsackda.
‚ÄėCommissioned by Philips Royal Electronics /¬†Milan 2009
