Chris writes in with this AMAZING project –
London based Troika has been commissioned by Artwise Curators to create a signature piece at the entrance of the new British Airways luxury lounges in Heathrow Terminal 5. ‘Cloud’ is a five meter long digital sculpture whose surface is covered with 4638 flip-dots that can be individually addressed by a computer to animate the entire skin of the sculpture. It’s really amazing and shots a lot of the technical process

I want one! I want that one!
I saw cloud and sculpture and thought of this ..
The funny and ironic thing is that most people will look at the sculpture and say “wow, that’s neat” and forget about it 5 minutes later… on the flipside its gotta be a major pain in the ass to have all 4600+ dots be individually addressable. so, is it worth it?
Samurai1200, it doesn’t make sense to look at sculpture from a practical point of view.
I’m certain it’s ‘a major pain in the ass’ to take care of the David.
