Digital Dawn: An Interactive Luminescent Window
Rachel Wingfield designs a lumiscent window blind that emulates photosynthesis and interacts with external stimuli.
Digital Dawn is an interesting new reactive window blind that is responsive to external stimuli. Designed by Rachel Wingfield, Digital Dawn digitally emulates photosynthesis using printed electroluminescent technology; as seen in the image below, a light-based botanical environment seems to grow on the window lamp as a room gets darker.
Wingfield intended Digital Dawn to emulate the process of photosynthesis using electroluminescent printing technology. Light-dependent sensors monitor the changing light levels within a space, triggering the growth of the organic foliage on the blind. A natural environment will appear to grow on the window surface, exploring how changing light levels within a space can have profound and physiological impact on our sense of well-being.
