Flown is a sculptural light installation constructed from hand folded acrylic, LEDs and atmospheric sensors.

Flown is a sculptural installation by artist Esther Rolinson commissioned for Illuminating York Light Festival 2015. It is a cloud-like form of hand-folded acrylic constructed through a drawing process and animated with programmed LEDs. Flown is a scalable kit of parts that can be reconfigured to its location. At ArtCHI 2016 a small-scale version will be shown appearing as a geometric haze molding into the gallery architecture. It will include an experimental development using generative programming and addition of an interaction design made in collaboration with Sean Clark. Through the inclusion of sensors Flown will be influenced by atmospheric nuances in temperature and moisture. An intention is to further a sense of subtle connection between the viewer, work and environment.
