The Wushu Project

the Wushu project - Erol Ismail

Is this possibly the coolest LED project in art history? That’s what it felt like when I worked on a further development of the Kung Fu weapon idea. Two weeks ago we came together in a London studio to shoot the elegant new CLS with a time slice rig of 50 Olympus Pen cameras. I designed a new LED weapon inspired by the car’s head lights and two professional Wushu artists performed in the space to create the dynamic 3D light sculptures you can see in the image above.
Have a look at the gallery of still images.

Here is a film from Mercedes-Benz about the project:
