IRIS by HYBE – New kind of monochrome LCD display

Created by Korean collective HYBE, IRIS is a media canvas with matrix of conventional information display technology, that is a monochrome LCD.Through the phased opening and closing of circular black liquid crystal, IRIS can create various patterns and control the amount (size) of passing lights.

IRIS is an interactive medium for visual simplicity which uses the passage of ambient light, not emission of light itself. The installation below consists of 400 LCDs (20×20), 20 Custom-designed Arduino compatible controllers and Processing and Kinect used for both autoactive & interactive content play.

IRIS was selected and supported by the Da Vinci Idea Program(2012) by Seoul Art Space_Geumcheon, KOREA
