An adaptive system is a being that can alter its current state in response to the environment. These are static objects such as plants, which are rooted and lack mobility. When further studied plants have the ability to alter their form through a chemical and mechanical reaction.
This project aims to explore these ideas of how some plants can alter their form in response to a change in external lighting conditions. The main principles that govern these ideas are chaos theory and generative design methods. This project focus is on applying these theories into a lighting system to evoke a sense of visual engagement with lighting objects, re-creating the connections we have with nature through light.
The design outcome is a modular lighting system that mechanically changes its form based on a change in the lighting environment it is placed in. It seeks to simply provide some kind of feeling and satisfaction by interacting with it.
