light spending—2023

"What if we spent it your way?"

Some parts of our society have lots of public funding, like the healthcare system. Some parts are privately funded, like transport. And for some parts we depend heavily on volunteers, like caring for our young and old.  
In this interactive installation, you have the power to change the balance of public, private and volunteer contributions to the universal services we use everyday. Use our custom interface to change the installation to reflect your opinions on what the contribution split should be.  
Our data driven light sculptures are about spending and universal services. It reveals nuances about how the economy interacts with our society.  We are asking you, how should we pay for things that matter?
