Topic Balance - Installation

In the exhibit Equilumen by Mischer Traxler he uses lamps connected on a single road to help illustration the notion of balance. The lamps together display even lighting across the room. When one is lowered it gets dimmer so that the light displayed in the room remains the same. I enjoyed this piece because it illustrates the power of unseen technology – a goal of human factors designers – the object must be understood rather than interpreted.

“The right balance is a delicate, inconsistent position and always the matter of the ideal distribution between two parties” – Traxler
