The' basis' of' this' project' was' to' investigate' how' to' use' Cultural' Probes' in' the' design' of' an' interactive'light'installation'to'be'placed'on'Sønder'Boulevard'in'Copenhagen.'In'our'opinion,'a' lot' of' recreational' spaces' in' Copenhagen' are' designed' for' use' in' daylight,' and' we' wanted' to' investigate' how' to' design' an' interactive' light' installation' that' could' make' it' more' attractive' to' use' these' public' spaces' after' dark.' The' inspiration' for' the' design' of' this' light' installation' is' based'on'feedback'gained'from'the'use'of'Cultural'Probes,'which'are'later'combined'with'other' sources'of'inspiration'of'a'both'technical'and'aesthetic'point'of'view.'The'use'of'Cultural'Probes' is'then'discussed'and'compared'to'Donald'Schön’s'thoughts'on'designing.' This' is' followed' by' a' presentation' of' our' design:' Kuglen' (the' sphere)' 5' an' interactive' light' installation.' One' of' the' main' sources' of' inspiration' gained' from' the' use' of' Cultural' Probes' was' nature' and' natural' phenomena.' Therefore' we' have,' inspired' by' the' works' and' thoughts' of' Japanese'architect'Toyo'Ito,'designed'the'light'installation'to'be'affected'by'weather'conditions' on' site.' The' concept' behind' the' installation' is' based' on' a' wish' of' combining' an' awareness' of' the' invisible' weather' elements' with' a' simple' design' aesthetic,' partly' inspired' by' the' works' of' Ólafur' Elíasson.' This' light' installation' consists' of' a' main' sphere' and' 24' smaller' light' elements.' The' design' is' presented' through' technical' drawings,' illustrations' and' a' computer' programme,' which' illustrates' how' nature' interacts' with' the' light' installation.' Subsequently' the' design' is' discussed,'which'leads'to'a'final'discussion'on'how'to'apply'Cultural'Probes'to'design'processes' and'a'summary'of'gained'experience'from'working'with'this'design'method.'
