Lightning Strikes (reduction)

A minimal wall light sculpture that freezes the moment of lighting hitting the ground. It takes the idea of lightning, a very chaotic and random natural element, and reduces it down to a very basic, repetitive form. It moves along 3 axis, up/down, left/right, and with depth, in a controlled pattern, recreating it in computer-based minimalism. The color gradient shows the movement going from the sky to the ground.
