Brooklyn NYC 2016
LUCID is new type of mirror that places a luminous, 3D image inside a reflection. This technique was invented by Adam Frank in Brooklyn NYC.
LUCID: 300 Ashland depicts a cloud formation illuminated by sun rays behind the plane of a floor-to-ceiling mirror. This installation is in the public lobby of a new high-rise construction in downtown Brooklyn. The images are derived from dimensional, ultra high resolution, time lapse video of real cloud formations. The clouds billow in three dimensions as viewers pass by. Viewers can ‘touch’ the illusion with their reflected image. LUCID functions as an ambient light source, a mirror and artwork simultaneously.
300 Ashland is a new cultural, residential and commercial building which houses the Brooklyn Academy of Music, the Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Arts and the Brooklyn Apple Store. The installation at 300 Ashland is the first large scale LUCID mirror in the world.
LUCID can replace standard mirror in almost any architectural situation and at any scale to create truly unique reflective displays. For more information, please email email@example.com
