Igor Siddiqui (ISSSStudio) + Matt Hutchinson (PATH) – DesCours 2011 – Bayou-luminescence

This installation, presented for the 2011 DesCours event in New Orleans, is described in the designers words as below:

Bayou-luminescence is an architectural installation that fuses material surface, structural volume and lighting effects into an immersive spatial experience.  Its title is a play-on-words that refers to bioluminescence, a phenomenon whereby living organisms produce and emit light.  Like a strange creature in the night, the installation glows from within, casting intricate shadows far beyond its envelope, while luring visitors to enter its tactile interior.
