Wanetlight is a luminous suspension composed of 25 blown glass candles that form a three-dimensional matrix of light. Easy body movements control the intensity level and rearrange the luminous volumes in space. The array is a pretext for exploring new relations with advanced technology objects. A new kind of manipulation is introduced, simplifying the use of electronic products.
Wanetlight is composed of 5x5x5 LEDs clustered in the three axes (LxWxH). The cluster forms a luminous 3-D screen cage. Each LED can be individually piloted to enable users to configure all sorts of light compositions in space. The control device uses a radio frequency transmitter activated by hand (ex:WiiMote), which commands the sensors that pilot the ascending/descending movements of the LEDs.
