A SUMMERS TALE FESTIVAL
OFF THE RADAR FESTIVAL
Nowadays it is possible to get non-toxic glow-in-the-dark-powder, formerly known as phosphor or ZnS+Cu.
As part of this project we coverd large objects on the festival ground. The idea behind this experiment ist to build light installations that don’t need a continuous power supply. In addition to long-glowing objects that can be triggered by sunlight, the audience was given small ultra violet LED torches, to interactively trigger the short-glowing surfaces .
Everybody was invited to draw their own artwork on a phosphor covered sea container. To further trigger everybodys playinstinct, we asked people to pose in front of the wall while shooting on them with UV-canonas, leaving fading mysterious shadows of their silhouettes on the surface.
We also built a bicycle on top of a container that moved a rotating UV-LED cluster to form a ‘light radar’ not only but also to refer to the festival logo, that we also created.
