Manipulating Light by Movement

Do we understand what happens when we dim the lights? To what extent could dimming become part of the design? Exploded View shows that the key factor is to move the light-source closer to or further away from the object. After all, the sun never fades; it is the earth that moves closer and further away, causing the light to reflect, change colour, dim or die. Ultimately, the experiment has led to a series of lamps representing different approaches: Cumulus, which dims through layering, Eclipse, which keeps the light contained or sets it free, and Lunar which plays with reflection.

Cumulus (dimming)
Through several layers of caps the light gets dimmed as more caps slide over each other. Each cap gives a different light intensity. They are pulled apart like an exploded-view drawing.  


Eclipse (darken)
In this variant, the light is like a jack in the box. When the light is covered, only a weak beam of light. As if you're moving it down it will generate instant light.  



Lunar (reflect)
By a reflecting shade the light, depending on the position of the light bulb to the cover, is reflected at the top or bottom.
