Touch of Light by Casey Lin – Light that Commemorate the Christchurch Earthquakes
Touch of Light – Pendant Light Overview
“Touch of Light” pendant light by Casey Lin was a student project for the Luxcity Festival in Christchurch. The light designed as a potential festival lighting solution, to commemorate the Christchurch earthquakes. The Touch of Light light pendant is pressure sensitive that responding only when the user applies pressure on the button, which creates a touch of light. The design is reminiscent of a lantern, and the triangular patterning is inspired by the tectonic plates that move during earthquakes.
Each participant at the festival is given their own light to wear. When called for a moment of silence to remember the victims of the earthquake, everyone can raise their lights and turn them on as a mark of respect.
