Light Shifting Display

The Light Shifting Display is a novel type of low-resolution lighting display that presents real-time information in an ambient manner. The prototype features a discrete and continuous display mode to support a wide range of visual representations and to explore the boundaries between display and luminaire design. The project was conducted in close collaboration with the Sydney-based green-tech start-up Solar Analytics. The prototype was evaluated in a real-world context in three family households over several weeks, displaying energy performance data. Preliminary findings indicate that the display gained a lot of attention and might provide a promising alternative towards high-resolution media in the Internet of Things Era.
