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

    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.
