Abstract or Summary of Project

Inspired by nature’s inclination towards the sun, Tess is a modular light installation that tessellates in response to sunlight. Designed to be fixed on clear glass windows to harvest solar energy, Tess comes to life in the day to “breathe” gently like a flower, transforming the interior space through dynamic shading. With its stored energy, it doubles either as a main light source, or a quiet ambient light in the evening, bringing the night sky into the house. The modules can be repeated to form a building facade or an entire window.
