Luminary: A Sustainable Attempt at Preserving Light that has become Unsustainable
2023, Fabric Light Box
The floodlights that once illuminated the Formula One Night Race in Singapore have been displaced by environmentally-friendly solutions. Lest we forget about our journey towards sustainability, the light generated by these floodlights is captured, preserved, and re-illuminated. Transformed into an LED-backlit fabric light box, it now stands as a luminary artifact for future generations to experience the past as they move towards a sustainable future.
