Post-exhibition update:

We’re very proud of our engaged groups have presented no less than three fantastically well-recieved exhibitions in February, during CPH Light Festival. People gathered from near and far to experience the exhibitions, and interact with them. Our effort didn’t go unnoticed by the festival, that rewarded us with the “Light of the day”-award. We dream of being able to continue our collaboration in many years to come!

Descriptions of our three projects.

“Fyr” invited the spectators to transfer their body heat to a tree in the winter cold, by pressing a lit-up hand-shaped button. The longer the button is pressed, the more heat is transfered, and the more the tree lights up in warm, red colors.

“Enchanted uplift” invited the users to jump on a platform, and see their action reflected through more than 10 different animations, displayed on 9, 7m tall LED strips!

















“Breathe with me” enchanted the experience of walking the path to the bike cellar through animated, atmospheric light.















AIRLab & ITU announces collaboration with CPH Light festival 2024!

Finally, ITU students have a chance of exhibiting at the CPH light festival! A group of engaged digital design students from the student-organization DAK has taken the initiative to start a collaboration between ITU and the Copenhagen Light Festival. This collaboration finds it’s home in AIRLab, where we will host a series of workshops, aiming to give the participants the opportunity of being a part of their own light-installation for the CPH light festival 2024.

First workshop! (04/10)

Thanks to everyone who participated in the first workshop (04/10), wherein the participants were introduced to what it means to exhibit at the CPH light festival and got a brief introduction to light-installations. Afterwards, we spoke about the resources available here in AIRLab, and how AIRLab might be able to assist in the creation of light installations – both by sharing our insights and contributing to the concept-development.

Second workshop! (25/10)

Join our second workshop about the creation of light installations for the CPH Light festival, right here at ITU!

Every ITU student is hereby invited to join us in AIR Lab, and get a chance to be a part of a group, that will create an interactive light installation for the CPH light festival! This is a fantastic opportunity to apply and expand your technical knowledge and design skills within a collaborative team setting.

No matter your field of study at ITU, you’re welcome to join us – the only requirement is an interest in the intersection of design, art and technology. You don’t need to bring anything; we’ve got everything covered. The workshop is hosted by the dedicated staff and friends of AIR Lab, along with representatives from DAK.

The event is scheduled for the 25th of October, from 16:00 to 19:00.

The agenda is as follows:

  1. Participants will come together and form groups based on their interests. The group formation process will be facilitated by our hosts.
  2. Once groups are formed, they will brainstorm and settle on a captivating concept for their light installation.
  3. Each group will then craft a detailed plan for executing their concept, ensuring it can be completed on time. Unlike typical student projects, we’re creating something that will shine at ITU for several months, and this calls for careful planning and execution.

To keep our energy levels up during the workshop, DAK will provide delicious pizza and snacks!

Should you have any questions about this workshop or if you’re unable to attend the event but still want to be part of a group, please don’t hesitate to contact us at AIR@ITU.DK. We can’t wait to see you and work on one of the most exciting workshops yet!
