Binary Sculpture, Bangalore, India

Issue 82 December / January : Architectural : Outdoor Lighting

To the north of Bangalore, India, is Manyata Embassy Business Park, one of the largest operational technology and business parks in the country.



Home to both global brands and small start-up companies, dpa lighting design developed and implemented a lighting plan for the entire site including the soft and hard landscaping, pedestrian and vehicular circulation, and building facades.

Greeting visitors to the site, at the centre of the entrance plaza, sits the Binary Sculpture artwork. dpa worked closely with artist Romicon Revola, to implement her vision of creating a sculpture whose form was expressed by concealed integrated lighting. The sculpture itself is a three-metre cube constructed from stainless steel, with each of the four visible faces featuring an array of 0 - 1 binary cut-outs, making reference to the IT nature of work of many of the park’s companies.

Located directly behind each cut-out is a Traxon Dot XL-6 RGB LED module, each individually addressable and programmable through Traxon’s Butler XT2 control system - allowing its colour, brightness and fade rate to be controlled separately from all of the other nodes, hence 0 or 1, in the installation. This permits for an almost endless number of visually dynamic effects to be created, resulting in a vibrant, eye catching piece of artwork.
