Glow 2021 @ TU/e : Eye of Atlas

During Glow 2021, the largest light festival in the Netherlands, the facade of the Eindhoven University of Technology main building named ‘Atlas’ was turned into an enormous eye overlooking the university campus.

To achieve this, we collaborated with the universities building services to connect all lighting in the Atlas building -desk lamps, hallway lamps, everything- and all streetlights to a central system. Subsequently we developed a digital model and control software to control all lights, such that the ‘eye’ appeared on the building facade, and wherever it would look, the campus would light up.
