Hyperion 1

HYPERION was the Greek god of light, one of the sons of Ouranos (Heaven) and Gaia (Earth), and the father of the lights of heaven. Hyperion 1 forms part of the Project Hyperion Range which questions the true architectural relation between light in art and light in architecture, a gap that is yet still to be explored, and that is the true scope of my research.

I have always been fascinated by the immaterial. Through my research, using computational optics and elaborate light formations through refraction ray tracing, the computational tools are used to generate an image of the unseen world, the strange and wonderful world of the refraction patterns of light. The process sought inspiration from optical formcreating systems and caustics. The design process is a fluent, yet at the same time complex, three-dimensional manifestation – a Light ‘sculpture’.
