LUMO

September 2013

The LUMO's are coming!

LUMO’s - Lighting Unidentified Moving Objects - live in a swarm in the forest. They are constantly looking for balance with each other and their environment. They feed on light and react on wind. As soon as a LUMO catches light of a fellow species, it stops moving. In their eternal search for balance, they change the geometry of the network that connects them. This extends between the trees, through the forest. Without each others light the LUMO's grow silent and lonely.

A collaboration of Marloes van Son and Bonne Knibbe.
