“Aperture” is a large wall made of 130 hexagonal components, each of which contains a circular opening with a moveable iris. As the user covers an iris, it opens up, revealing the light on the other side of the wall. The work as a whole is reminiscent of Danny Rozin’s Wooden Mirror.

In development by multidisciplinary group TheGreenEyl for the past five years, this project is a success in electronics, aesthetics, and user interaction. The makers describe it best:

Aperture acts like an autonomous skin capable of precise external control. Visual information is transmitted from the inside of the building to the outside. The surface permeability is regulated when the aperture’s opening diameters are changed.
