apostrophy's: imagination light garden

bangkok-based multi-disciplinary studio apostrophy’s has sent us images of ‘imagination light garden’, a light installation at the international horticultural exposition royal flora ratchaphruek at the royal rajapruek park in chiang mai, thailand. drawing from the image and symbolism of a lotus as it pertains to the story of king bhumibol humbly receiving the flower from an old lady, the outdoor design utilizes nearly 2 million light bulbs to create a visually-arresting motif throughout the garden.

covering an area of approximately 6,300 m2, the design divides the site into five individual parts or chapters in the garden. the first, ‘bloom field’, consists of several lotus light sculptures that create a welcoming atmosphere at the entrance. ‘star marine’ features a flock of butterflies which plume in correspondence to the music within a field of light. an interactive sensor enables visitors to create wave motions in the field with a moving hand. conceived as a self-propelling interaction, a group of ‘solar cell flowers’ collect energy during the day to sustainably power the lights at night.

the next portion of the garden called ‘black light field’ is composed of a hundred fluorescent-painted flowers that glow during the night. ‘anodard lake’, named after a buddhist mythology, features a collection of fish light sculptures which ‘jump’ to the music against a backdrop of a peaceful lake. the final portion of the installation, ‘twilight field’, is situated at the exit by a buddhist statue pavilion and consists of a lane created by two lines of local rattan flower lamps.
