Hyper-Matrix – Thousands of physical pixels in a 180º vertical landscape

Hyper_Matrix_Jonpasang_02 copy

Created by Seoul based media arts group Jonpasang, Hyper-Matrix is an installation created for the Hyundai Motor Group Exhibition Pavilion in Korea, the 2012 Yeosu EXPO site. The installation comprises a specially made steel construction to support thousands of stepper motors that control 300x300mm cubes that project out of the internal facade of the building.

Lightweight blocks move in and out of the facade, creating infiniti number of possibilities in the vertical, 180 degree, landscape. The audience is part of the pattern shaping performance as thousands of cubes move with the sounds. Pixel waves sweep the space, ripples emit from the centre and just in case this is not enough, projection mapping takes care of the rest. See videos for more.

Jonpasang collective includes Jin-Yo Mok, Sookyun Yang, Earl Park, Jin-Wook Yeo and Sang-Wook Yu.

    awesome :)

    The technology is awesome though only through its “moreness” but the use of it is very random and uncreative. The projections finally kill all the qualities the physical display could have had.

    I was shocked at the beginning of the show, but the following interaction between the display and the adv is too weak.

    Creative approach, the wall needs to interact with the overlay footage… better?
    Also, the “Stuck” pixel (lol), on the far left was really distracting, the block I am talking about can be seen in the first picture as well as the videos.

    Reminds me of Emil Radok’s Disneyworld Epcot Energy Pavillion show with the rotating panels.

    future-inspiring and incredible/enormous ‘art object’. scale of construction, high contrast result, experimental and engaging forms. why not? are you guys waving the flag over there? this is just all part of the space race

    Absolutely fantastic!!!

    whats the point of using touchdesigner if you’re just going to spend a fortune and actually build a million little actual cubes on stepper motors?
