Insert coin and watch it bounce along chimes, making music as it goes. Then the coin comes back to you.
A rotating wheel that’s part mirror, part window. Stand opposite someone else and watch your faces transform into one another. Lots of videos showing how it looks. Simple and wonderful.
I want to know what the light source is. Not for sale (yet).
Haven’t seen these guys in mags as much as I used to. But it’s clear they never lost any steam. Now they have a hotel with four shops, a gallery, a restaurant and a garden. And only one guest room. Ha ha.
Nice website, too.
Hypnotizing and beautiful. Brings to mind all the hundreds of particle effects we’ve seen in movies.
Seen this stuff before, of course, but here you (1) change the shape through a mysterious touch interface and (2) can actually touch the goo.
I’d like to pull the interface farther away from the ferrofluid. A minimum six feet away. As you approach it the dynamic effects would settle down–when you get close enough to touch it, there’s nothing to see. The active zone for making it dance could be shaped around the room, causing people to arrange themselves in a prescribed queue. Or better, put some sensors on the walls and ceiling. Watch people fondle the room looking for some kind of response.
Why not just make this a required function for all billboards? Throw some solar panels around the top and sides, too.
I keep looking at this piece and find myself falling deeper into it. It’s nicely done, the multiple layers and representations of looking and the idea of looking. Even the reproduction on this website can be seen as another representation, and I love that Triangulation, which usually is so eloquent, presents this one so matter-of-factly. As if the holes in the wall have come alive and are trying to be known.
