Designed by Tsinghua University team led by Danqing Shi, The Field of Hope is a lighting installation for the 2015 Milan EXPO China Pavilion. It consists of 30,000 metal “straws”, each with a LED diffuser tip, functioning as a 3-dimensional pixel display field.
Created by Adam W. Brown in collaboration with Robert Root-Bernstein, ReBioGeneSys – Origins of Life is an extreme minimal ecosystems theoretically capable of forming the self-organizing chemistries necessary to produce semi-living molecules and perhaps even protocells.
In Karesansui, Aaaajiao used an algorithm and vvvv to create a landscape in a vector-field like arrangement of pitch-black mutant limbs, taking a viewer into an unsettling dystopian scenery of spawned beings growing out of the gallery’s floors, walls, and stairway, competing with each other.
Created by Madrid based creative studio Espadaysantacruz, Light Kinetics is an interactive light installation where the behaviour of light is controlled by a physics simulator.
Created by Neil Mendoza, One Degree of Freedom explores interactive projection mapping as a means to touch and interact with an object. Drawing inspiration from marble and pinball machines, the installation gives the mapping illusion an extra layer of depth.
Created by Kenichi Yoneda (Kynd) in collaboration with Tokyo ‘visual label’ BRDG, [BRDG020] Lilium is an audio-visual experiment that combines Kynd’s research into water colour simulation with the music by Yopparigami/Yu Miyashita.
An abstract representation of this landscape is created from a matrix of 529 acrylic pipes piercing the ceiling between the first and the second floor, creating organic rock-like formations on the first floor reflected as an ocean surface on the second.
Commissioned by Caviar House & Prunier for London Heathrow Terminal 2, “Emergence” is a new light installation by London based Cinimod studio.
Aerosol explores what happens when we reverse the common process of transferring physical systems into virtual ones. In this project 16 servo motors control the undulated landscape setting iron balls in continuous motion.
Morphogenetic Creations is a collection of works that explore the nature of complex forms that can be produced by digital simulation of growth systems.
Created by London based experimental architecture and design studio Minimaforms, this project is speculative life-like robotic environment that raises questions of how future environments could actively enable new forms of communication with the everyday.
Animalia and Caelum are two projects that take position that our idealisation, romanticism and paradoxical thinking in ecology is holding us back from finding new ways to interact with nature.
