Octavian Albu & Dorin Cucicov, Fall 2018
created in collaboration with French (lighting) and German (architecture) students for the Festival of Lights in Lyon, in December 2018

Lightpong is an interactive outdoor installation based on the famous 1970's computer game ‘PONG’. The main focus is to transform the mechanics of the old game into a new interactive and collaborative experience. The game can be played by two players. Each player controls his paddle with a source of light; anything can be used, lighters, smartphone flashlights or led keychains.

Jupiter in Dialogue

Maria Năstase, Fall 2018
created in collaboration with French (lighting) and German (architecture) students for the Festival of Lights in Lyon, in December 2018

Jupiter is a light-sound interactive art installation examining power relations between modern people and ancient gods. It uses new technology and humor to explore the oldest dialogue ever known or imagined by art - the one between man and the gods.

Presence

interactive video installation

Alina Rizescu & Dorin Cucicov, Fall 2018
created in collaboration with French (lighting) and German (architecture) students for the Festival of Lights in Lyon, in December 2018

Presence speaks, in a playful way, about the matter of truth in the digital era.
The installation provokes the user to discover the two sides of the installation and to be both spectator and performer. A wall of pixels is showing moving silhouettes towards the public from the lower side of the garden, while visitors coming from the upper side are invited to interact with projected shadows.


Ice Breaker

Bogdan Ceangu, Fall 2018
created in collaboration with French (lighting) and German (architecture) students for the Festival of Lights in Lyon, in December 2018

The Ice Breaker concept focuses on the relationships between people, the movement and the power of communication that dynamically influence the light network. The ice breaks when people interact. The installation changes its light geometry when light sensors detect the passage of visitors. This brings light connections between people present at different points of the garden. Initial Ice Breaker idea by Alina Rizescu.

Out There

transmedia graphic novels

Alina Rizescu & Dorin Cucicov, Fall 2018

Out There is a comic book universe that integrates fictional characters with real world events. It tackles the issues of homeless men by interconnecting multiple stories in a similar context. These stories can be read independently, but they also work together as part of a bigger narrative.

Fictional storyline is sprinkled with disguised links and easter eggs that can be navigated with a smartphone. This transforms the story in a multiplatform experience in which pieces of puzzles are put together by different means, to create a complex narrative. Readers can choose the actions of the characters in some key moments and ultimately decide the final outcome of the stories.

This project consists of two independent short graphic novels that overlap in certain situations, created by Alina Rizescu and Dorin Cucicov.
