In science, equilibrium refers to a state of balance between opposing forces; in the STEM building of uOttawa, you would find an installation that draws on the creative strengths of two completely different disciplines -- engineering and visual arts.

The installation Equilibrium in the STEM building

Equilibrium is a collection of triangular pieces and tubes with lights that are activated when people walk up or down the staircase below the installation.

In collaboration with the university of Ottawa, uDesign Solution is designing the system that can transform the kinetic energy from people climbing up and down the stairs into electrical energy which in turns become radiant energy, bringing the whole installation to life.
