Darc Awards 2021 : Supermassive Black HoleArt & Exhibitions
dpa were invited to create a light art installation in collaboration with Tryka to be displayed during the [d]arc Night event on 31st March 2022 celebrating the darc Awards 2021.
The brief for the Darc Awards 2021 Darc Night was to create a light art installation inspired by a song related to lighting. dpa chose the song “Supermassive Black Hole” by Muse. A relatively simple shape was created by stretching flexible RGBW LED tape along a metal radial structure mimicking the gravitational field of a black hole. Careful and creative programming allowed us to generate movement and dynamism to express the vortex movement of the stars precipitating towards black holes in a spiralling movement.
