For the Walk the Light installation, a band of white light will track each visitor as they pass through the tunnel, jumping to the next person as soon as they pass.
Either side of the white light will be washes of strong colour, which will be pushed and pulled along the tunnel depending on the ebb and flow of visitors.
The project, which Cinimod says is the first bespoke lighting installation for the LDF, will use thermal camera tracking and Philips LED lighting mounted on a moving monorail.
Cinimod founder Dominic Harris says, ‘I am fascinated by light and the interaction of light, architecture and art. Responsiveness is also an essential part of all the projects undertaken by Cinimod Studio.
‘Walk the Light embodies all these aspects and seeks to capture the imagination of visitors, playfully transforming their experience of arriving at the museum by mapping the volume of traffic and converting the date into a living expression of the space.’
Walk the Light will be at the Exhibition Road tunnel entrance of the V&A throughout the London Design Festival, which runs from 14-23 September.
