At the core of FLUX is an exploration of how smart technologies (which sense and respond directly to their surroundings,) can be used to create an environment which invites both visual and physical interaction.
FLUX's sculptural form is coated with photo- and thermochromic pigments, whose properties change in reaction to UV light or heat; changing throughout the day and with the touch of a hand, no additional energy input is required to create an artistic environment that is in a state of continuous change.
Bio: Fluctuating contributors from Ryerson Architecture’s [R]ed[U]x Lab, creating an evolving extrospective engine. Rooted in design inquiry and innovation, contributors work towards the intersection between contemporary standards and the use of new technologies to inform this process and its product. This year’s contributors are Jessica Chen and Robyn Thomson with fabrication help from Lauren Chan, Adrian Chiu, Liam Hall, Timothy Lai, Stephanie Steriotis & Brant York.
