Amorphous if 5,000 Suspended Smartphone Glass Screens #ArtTuesday #installation
Unveiled earlier this month at Milan Design Week 2016:
Japanese company AGC Asahi Glass participates for the second time at Milan Design Week with an immersive glass installation titled Amorphous, showcasing a “light, flexible and expressive” glass world that will dramatically change the conventional image of glass.
Translated from Japanese using Google Translate:
A thin chemical tempered glass of a light presence, which was born by state-of-the-art technology using about 5,000 sheets, creating a felt space the molecular structure of the glass, “amorphous”, which expanded 10 billion times.
Is in the familiar glass in our lives, a dense and rich micro cosmos, was represented by the director of the latest glass technology and light. And squint to every one of the thin chemical tempered glass floating in space, have been processed in a variety of textures by advanced technology, we will be surprised by the appearance of a rich glass representation. Glass colors come and go depending on the angle. While reflects their own like a mirror, glass to show also the other side of the scenery. Glass that reflects the image of the light. This huge molecular structure model is also the stuffed showcase the future of glass technology.
A light, free, made with expressive glass installation of the “amorphous” is, brings a new inspiration to us, it shows the possibility of the future natural science and advanced technology are fused.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
