The London collective, Greyworld, have just completed their latest public display project called The Source. The Source is an eight storey high kinetic sculpture that relays information about the London Stock Exchange. “The Source is formed from a grid of cables arranged in a square, 162 cables in all, reaching eight stories to the glass roof. Nine spheres are mounted on each cable and are free to move independently up and down its length. In essence the spheres act like animated pixels, able to model any shape in three dimensions ? a fluid, dynamic, three dimensional television.” Really nice use of “physical pixels” ala Kelly Heaton’s Nami orbs and Daniel Hirschmann’s GlowBits! Can’t wait to see it in action next time I make it to the UK. (thanks to Chris for the link)
