LightWing II creates a mysterious sensation of tactile data. In this interactive installation, a kinetic construction is augmented with stereoscopic 3D projections and spatial sound. Flexible carbon fiber rods hold a large transparent membrane in tension. A light touch sets the delicate wing-like structure into a rotational oscillation and enables the visitor to navigate through holographic spaces and responsive narratives.

LightWing II is the latest project in a series of immersive installations by the arc/sec Lab for Cross Reality Architecture and Interactive Systems. The research lab is based at the Architecture Department at the University of Auckland. With a focus on intuitive user interaction, the Lab investigates new design solutions through the fusion of material and digital information.
