From the moment humans came into being, they have been marveling at the infinitely repeated action of the tides following the moon.
Leela Shanker and Samuel Powers (Dual Lighting Design & Architecture MFA & MArch) simulate this phenomenon in their innovative lighting design project, 12:04:24 – 12:04:50 AM.
The students were recently named the grand prize winners of New York City Section’s (IESNYC) Student Lighting Competition, a contest that “challenges students to apply their education, skills, and imagination in order to take an elusive concept and transform it into a three-dimensional illuminated visual experience,” according to IESNYC. The team received a cash award of $ 2,000.
A panel of judges called Shanker and Powers’ project, “A beautiful, clear, and simple demonstration of how light can effect a very specific time from through nature’s design.”
