Light Leaks: darkened rooms at galleries in Paris, Nantes  and LA filled with 50 disco balls illuminated by a sequence of timed, coloured lighting cues by Kyle McDonald and Jonas Jongejan. To wit:

An impressive graphics showcase at this year’s Google I/O Developer Festival at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California. To wit:

Fluid Structure is an immersive interactive installation which explores how an ephemeral and amorphous shape reacts under various stimuli, internal and external. Forces and collisions bend the shape until it breaks, recombining it into new aggregates. The result is an ever changing landscape, mysterious yet familiar. A dramatic data-like visualization emphasizes the internal structure of the shape and its motion. Using computer vision the audience is made an integral part of the process, leaving its temporary physical mark, always bound to eventually to disappear. The system is driven by a state of the art fluid solver able to process in real time the forces and constraints the shape is subjected to.
