Discovery Wall – Screen made from thousands of iPod Nanos

Created by London-based creative agencies Squint/Opera and Hirsch&Mann, Discovery Wall is a wall-sized installation created from thousands of tiny screens and lenses that celebrates the work of the new $650m Belfer Research Building, part of Weill Cornell Medical College (WCMC) in Manhattan.

The installation (approx 4.6m x 2.7m) is comprised of 2800 mini screens set in a grid pattern behind a panel of thousands of circular acrylic discs. The dual layer construction makes it possible to read the wall from a distance as a single image, and then, up close, each screen has information about medical discoveries and other news from WCMC’s website.
