Art meets Technology

UNSW Illuminate is a student society that aims to empower students to apply hands-on skills on large scale professional and multidisciplinary projects. We seek to foster deep interactions between designers and engineers, allowing students to realise their creative visions while gaining practical design and manufacturing experience. This project combines the creativity of art and the innovation of engineering to demonstrate the magic of art meeting technology through light.
