12,000 Illuminated Sphere Interactive Sculpture #ArtTuesday

12,000 illuminated spheres, a water pond and 8 laser projectors make up this entrancing interactive sculpture. via Whitevoid Designs

Shaped by visitor interaction, randomly distributed molecules begin to swarm — aggregating and accumulating. They are constantly in motion, reacting to the people who seek to engage. Ever-changing dynamic light sculptures are created, conveying the essence of Hyundais design language, the inspirational role played by nature and the ability to continuously adapt and evolve.

Due to a complex computer algorithm the particles of the cloud seem randomly arranged. But the algorithm takes into account the positions and projection angles of 8 high-speed laser projectors suspended around the artwork. This enables the lasers to hit and light up all spheres without any occlusion even deep inside the arrangement.

The lit spheres finally form three-dimensional graphical compositions without any sweet or blind spots. Keeping the same density and intensity the FLUIDIC graphics enable their viewers to observe and interact simultaneously from every point of view. To analyze the positions of the visitors, their posture and gestures the installation incorporates multiple 3D camera tracking systems. FLUIDIC presents a form that is both flexible and solid, a flow with a distinctive profile but dynamic motion.

Screenshot 4 2 14 11 48 AMEvery Tuesday is Art Tuesday here at Adafruit! Today we celebrate artists and makers from around the world who are designing innovative and creative works using technology, science, electronics and more. You can start your own career as an artist today with Adafruit’s conductive paints, art-related electronics kits, LEDs, wearables, 3D printers and more! Make your most imaginative designs come to life with our helpful tutorials from the Adafruit Learning System. And don’t forget to check in every Art Tuesday for more artistic inspiration here on the Adafruit Blog!

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
