Illuminate umbrella

LIGHT INSTALLATION


An umbrella that lights up via a series of small LEDs when it rains. Touch sensitive, the umbrella illuminates in tune with the rainfall, visually echoing it in a delicate manner. This piece was designed as a usable light installation for the Christchurch LUX festival goers as they walked through the dark ruins of the city (post-2011 earthquake) to give a feeling of comfort and safety.
