Lighting Design - Equinox

"There is not enough darkness in all the world to put out the light of even one small candle" -Robert Alden

Inspired by the quote above, Equinox treats the user as the "darkness" acting upon the light. Surrounding the light is a supporting gimbal system. This allows the light to remain upright despite manipulations made to the outer tetrahedron. Due to its geometry, no matter how the tetrahedron is placed, it will also always point upwards. 

The exposed gimbal system, simple structure and open flame accentuate the beauty of physical mechanisms and chemical reactions. Presenting the viewer with an illusion they can understand through interaction.
