Luminescent Anthologies is continuation of our research in designing, building, and documenting human powered light sculptures. The work features kinetic light sculptures accompanied by a series of long-exposure photographs of the instruments in motion. The photos and sculptures are a symbiotic body of work highlighting the sculpture’s dependence on human interaction for activation. The work bridges the fields of art, science, and instrument making. The kinetic light sculptures are a futurist technoculture reimagining of traditional native instruments including gourd shakers, rattles, and percussive rakes. Made from a variety of materials including 3D printed plastic, brass, steel, quartz piezo transducers, and custom electronics, they all use human movement to generate light.
