Abstract
The report describes the Master Thesis I Philip Bergström did during 2015 at Lund University at the faculty of Industrial design. The project investigates how light can be used in the train station “Station Korsvägen” in Gothenburg to entertain passengers while waiting. The goal was to ease the passage of time by allowing people to interact with an installation that also communicates an informative function. The result of the process is an interactive installation that illustrates the seasons outside by projecting animations of trees and plants that react to the movements of the user on the platforms. The reaction are many and varies from making a tree bloom, ruffling leaves, moving branches, to shaking of snow. Trains also affect the... (More)

The result of the process is an interactive installation that illustrates the seasons outside by projecting animations of trees and plants that react to the movements of the user on the platforms. The reaction are many and varies from making a tree bloom, ruffling leaves, moving branches, to shaking of snow. Trains also affect the motions of the trees similar to that of a real tree by creating “winds” when they pass by. The installation will illustrate the nature which is characteristic of that month and thereby making it an ever changing experience with different reactions throughout the year. (Less)
