Breathing LED system

November 15, 2012

Second of a pair of opportunities to work with the Brothers Dressler on one of their wonderful reclaimed wood installations. This piece is an installation for the newly renovated Lululemon store in Toronto’s Yorkdale mall. The brothers describe it like this:

Behind the cash desk hangs our exploration of the relationship between natural growth, our bodies and the calm nature of trees. Re-created out of misplaced limbs and sections of found trees, an uprooted tree is divided into the 7 chakras of the body and breathes calmly with embedded LEDs glowing through cast glass sections of bark. The idea of this piece was to evoke a peaceful experience as one looks up to the re-assembled tree.

I designed and executed the LED system that evoked the peaceful breathing rhythms Jason & Lars were looking for.
