SKIES

Skies is a dynamic light art sculpture series made to depict ever-changing magnificence of the sky at a specific place or time. The piece pictured below depicts the sky in Zagreb, Croatia. It consists of 7 boxes positioned above each other. Individually, each box provides a view of the unique details of the sky. Together, 7 lightboxes and the light space between them forms a large scale view of the open sky that is constantly in motion. In each box, there are images of the sky, light filters, and algorithmically programmed dynamic lights set to depict the change of daylight from sunset to sunrise. Just like in nature, the sky is constantly changing and the same state is never repeated.

The following patent-pending device was a result of a research-based approach to creating Skies which involved studying complimentary benefits of light, art, and biophilia.

Patent-Pending Personalized Lighting System for Compensating Lack of Exposure to Natural Light. The invention seeks to provide a solution to lack of exposure to natural daylight by calibrating the full spectrum lighting users are exposed to based on their personal requirements for exposure to natural light. The lighting and content of the piece adjusts in real time according to the user's biological needs calculated based on data collected from a wearable light exposure tracking device (LETD) and other environmental factors (such as time of day, season, current weather and weather forecast, etc.). This variable full spectrum light is added to the algorithmic composition of the ever-changing lights that are set to emulate change of daylight over the course of a day.
