Toronto Design Offsite 2016: 325 Church Street: NOVA

NOVA is an installation inspired by the natural phenomenon itself. A star that suddenly increases in brightness and then slowly returns to its natural state over time. The hanging structure proposed increases in brightness as people approach it; the closer the person is, the brighter the structure becomes. The use becomes engulfed by a bright space, surrounded by tessellating tetrahedrons. Each surface of the tessellation contains a reflective surface, the closest of which is an infinity mirror that resonates the bright space. These mirrors reflect all of the light on the structure infinitely, providing the experience of being in the cosmos themselves.
