1C – Dream Machine – Le Marquee


Inspired by classic entertainment symbols echoing back to old theatres and movie houses, we have created an audio reactive chandelier that produces soft, incandescent light from basic musical input. This item first appears to be a simple chandelier made of flowing cloth. When musical input begins this perception is changed as the lights flicker and chase in time to the beat instead of providing constant light.


Made of three rings of laser cut acrylic with 20 incandescent bulbs affixed to them. each bulb is controlled individually from the black box hung above the chandelier that houses the electronic components.
