The CarbonSun is an art work: A light integrated sun sculpture.
In 2012 towards the end of the InTICE project Intravision CEO Per was commissioned to do an light-based sculpture in the cultural institution "USF Verftet”, located in an old ship-warf in the Norwegian west-coast city Bergen. In Norway, Bergen is infamous as the countries most rainy city, so Per saw this as an opportunity for bringing a sun to this beautiful but wet city.
The CarbonSun was designed with an identical light pattern as the STAR lamp, but with all the 7-colours of light selected within the spectral range of visible light; from 440nm blue light to 660nm deep red lights. The sculpture is hollow, with an structural inner shell, made in silver anodized epoxy/e-glass composite while the outer shell with the integrated LED panels, are made in a carbon-fibre composite. In line with the majority of Per’s sculptural works the sculpture was made in cooperation with Francis WU and his Jinli Composites in China.
