http://vimeo.com/46857169 Seoul-based media arts collective Jonpassang`s 'hyper-matrix' kinetic vertical landscape installation for the hyundai motor group exhibition pavilion in South Korea is an impressive example of user-based experience and technological know-how.
Lightweight blocks move in and out of the large wall facade, creating infinite number of possibilities in the vertical 180 degree landscape. The audience also has a part in the pattern shaping performance, as thousands of cubes move in reaction to the sounds of the surrounding atmosphere. 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. The stunning effects from this installation are made possible from a specially made steel construction that helps support thousands of stepper motors which, in turn control the 300x300mm cubes that project out of the internal facade of the building.
