Project Overview
LIGHT GUIDEMountain Guide from Nano Light-Emitting Plants express balance between nature and technology-What if we take plant itself as the road light ? Can we replace road light with natural plant itself ?Normally, Light pollution is the presence of anthropocentric light in the night environment. It is exacerbated by excessive, misdirected or obtrusive uses of light, but even carefully used light fundamentally alters natural conditions. As a major side-effect of urbanization, it is blamed for compromising health, disrupting ecosystems and spoiling aesthetic environments.Therefore, we dedicated to find an environmentally friendly way to decrease light pollution efficiently. The latest research published by NanoMets, an international journal of the MIT biotechnology research team, found that leaves of arugula, spinach, kale, and Spanish cabbage were impregnated with high pressure. In the solution of special nanomolecules such as luciferase oxidase, coenzyme and phosphor from fireflies, self-illuminated plants can be created.We create LIGHT GUIDE a lighting device on mountain path to reduce light pollution. The plant is used as a veneer to self-illuminate and light the mountain path. It mixes energy, functions and materials by combining plants and device.LIGHT GUIDE is a mountain guide from Nano Light-Emitting Plants, which is based in MIT forward technique to prevent light pollution.-"To create lamps that do not have to be plugged in, it can shine through the metabolic effects of the plant itself." said by MIT.We are making glowing plants, inspired by nature, using synthetic biology. LIGHT GUIDE is a mountain guide from Nano Light-Emitting Plants. The project is based in MIT avant-garde technique to environmentally friendly prevent light pollution.In the future, LIGHT GUIDE will replace electric-powered streetlights to reduce light pollution and the impact of the original mountain streetlight on biodiversity.-| Strategy of biologyNoctilucent algae, fireflies, and fluorescent eels are all naturally occurring organisms that self-luminescence through their own enzymes.MIT shows the final research, they chose firefly as their media that we can use to take the place of traditional road light.plants grow globally, therefore we use new tech to install the brand new device which can solve outdoors light pollution and illuminants.| Nature's overarching designLuciferin, luciferase, etc can only react to luminescence in the living body, so the dispersion will be in the soil and be naturally degraded. All devices are made of metal, reducing plastic production; after plant death, vegetative propagation, overgrowth, they can be buried, planted directly on the spot, and used local native plants.| ReferenceEngineers create plants that glowIllumination from nanobionic plants might one day replace some electrical lighting.| MusicInspiring Indie Background-PUBLIC SPACE DESIGN / BIO-MIMICRY DESIGNWork Delivery / Emitting-Light Device x 1Dimensions / single part 400 x 400mmNational Taiwan University of Technology and ScienceYear / 2018Designer / Hsieh Tsung Ying, Huang Hsuan Ting
