This flashlight was made as an assignment for Introduction to Fabrication class taught by Ben Light. The only design constraints were that it be portable and the light adjustable. I was inspired by sacred geometry and the Elements of Euclid shapes for the form and the refraction phenomena for the visual effect. The process of building the flashlight was two-fold. First, I drew technical drawings of the flashlight and picked materials for the body. After the material was cut and all the pieces we ready to construct, I built the head of the flashlight which houses the dichroic film and a addressable LED ring. The LED's are programmed by and powered by a 9V battery. The light is dimmed by a knob fit on the body of the flashlight.
