Levenslicht is a physical installation aimed towards shining light on the lesser number. People with a vulnerable state of mental health who, despite many stigmas and taboos, are willing to share about the obstacles in their respective lives to create space for personal growth.

Levenslicht (Lifelight)

Vulnerabilities in our mental wellbeing create social obstacles but are at the same time a source of personal growth. They deserve to be seen in their most fascinating form.

Levenslicht is a physical installation aimed towards shining light on the lesser number. People with a vulnerable state of mental health who, despite many stigmas and taboos, are willing to share about the obstacles in their respective lives to create space for personal growth.

Levenslicht exists of individual generative data visualizations which are engraved in a natural shape, based on life changing experiences. These personal slides/slices are placed in a modular lighting installation in which three axis show the viewer the dynamic relation between past and future, human and natural development.

“The most ‘scarred’ visualizations created the most fascinating and aesthetically pleasing imagery in this installation. This spoke to the curiosity of many students and in turn motivated them to share about their personal vulnerabilities without regret. An important development in our communal thinking and growth.”

- Linda Schouten, Teacher Communication & Multimedia Design

Project Origin

Levenslicht originated from an individual school project at Communication & Multimedia Design, at Avans University of Applied Sciences at 's-Hertogenbosch, under the supervision of Linda Schouten. The physical realization was carried out in collaboration with Peter Hoens, Willie Pijnenburg and Johan van den Heuvel (TechLab academy AI&I).
