Commissioned for Singapore Night Festival 2015. This 6m tall kinetic light sculpture is Starlight Alchemy’s first bold step into interactive art installations.

Deep within :Helix, our dreams lie dormant.

Inspired by the genetic instructions that govern all biological life, :Helix invites active participation, through music and motion capture. Participants rediscover themselves by making :Helix an extension of their inner selves.

Blending both Art and Science, :Helix consists of 35 polycarbonate tubes fitted with a sequence of programmable LED lights. These lights dance are triggered by participants through motion capture and form complex patterns of vibrant colour along the entire length of :Helix. :Helix is arranged along a flexible core, enabling it to twist and turn, creating an almost organic movement that plays along with the brilliant display on its body. :Helix is a mirror into our genetic memories, which reminds us that we each have an ability to dream further than what we were made to do.

Original concept by Max Pagel. Built by Starlight Alchemy. Programming by Max Pagel.
