Onformative’s true/false is a kinetic sculpture composed of arrays of circular black metal segments set in mechanical columns. Interlocking and rotating around fluorescent light tubes. On or off, true or false. Some entities have the property of being committed to adopt either one of the two states and switch between them. This sculpture explores what lies in between these fundamental states in order to make change tangible.
Hype Cycle is a series of futurist films exploring human-machine collaboration, combining performance and emerging technologies.
These human-machine interactions from Universal Everything are inspired by the Hype Cycle trend graphs produced by Gartner Research, a valiant attempt to predict future expectations and disillusionments as new technologies come to market. The first film in this series is Smart Matter. It builds on the studio’s past experiments with motion studies, imagining a new form of collaborative interface for improvised modelling. More Hype Cycle films coming soon.

The Expression Wall is a playful surface that allows you to express yourself in many different ways. You can engage from a distance as your body movement triggers colorful animations. In expression mode, you can move abstract color around with your hands. In drawing mode, you are prompted with a question that you can answer in written or drawn form.
This unique touch surface was created with 100 procedurally generated slats of plexiglas which are backlit by LED light. The natural flex of the plexiglas provides a surprising and delightful surface for drawing.
The Expression Wall is an ongoing installation at Deloitte University gives attendees a way to express themselves. Each expression is stored in an ever growing gallery that reflects the moods, opinions and interests of D.U. attendees.
Meandering River is an audiovisual art installation comprised of real-time generated visuals and music composed by an A.I. The digital artwork makes change perceivable by creating a unique awareness of time. Spanning over multiple screens, the piece reinterprets the shifting movements of rivers by visualizing and sonifying their impact on the surface of the earth.
Three-dimensional fireworks made of a cumulation of light points can be set off by visitors with their smartphones. After selecting a firework on their smartphone, people can see thee firework as a three-dimensional light display composed of hundreds and thousands of light points.
Nike’s Global Sportswear team challenged Leviathan to get the right people talking about–and testing out–the brand’s new winter line of SneakerBoots and Tech Pack Aeroloft jackets. Launched in Shanghai, the event–dubbed Test Stride–invited media and VIP influencers to experience both lines’ weatherproof benefits, first-hand.
Invented by Leviathan, hi-tech product displays guided participants to the core attraction: a 170-foot-long interactive obstacle course–complete with jagged terrain, a flooded street and barricaded alley. This competitive event used human motion to trigger visuals and track participant’s scores in real-time, while an automatic photo-capture feature displayed their victory across a vivid 30-ft-wide display.
Nike Test Stride moved beyond familiar product trials to create an authentic and shareable experience for not-easily-impressed attendees. Coverage of the event was global, generating excitement around Nike’s release for premiere streetwear and fashion media outlets.
Developed as a part of ongoing research into light and space, Tiles of Virtual Space is an interactive immersive installation that transforms a finite space into a vast, endless expansion using light and sound.
Created by Gabriel Pulecio, Infinity is intended as a space for reflection and self awareness. It is founded in an idea of a technology that is not distracting us from where we are but quite the opposite. Infinity reminds us that we are here, in the present moment, and that every step taken in any direction creates new ripples of light in time, building infinite structures of light that only can be seen by looking a bit further away than our own reflection.
Inspired by the possibility of intuitive interaction, Büro Achter April was ask to translate the transmediale.11 campaign into moving image, visualising the previous design work by +Ruddigkeit of one line and one dot, resembling the numbers 1 and 0.
This basic pattern of the binary system – and the DNA, represents the code, which connects man and machine. It constitutes the foundation of modern communication, translating our humanness in to the digital space. Büro Achter April created the visual idea and carried out the entire production, through motion design and live action film work – based on the main Claim "Response: Ability" of the art and media festival.
In a world where Designers are increasingly faced with the problem of understanding and visualizing data-filled space and making it inhabitable, Informative created an exploration of immateriality as form is creating a new poetic field with which to narrate space and information. Location-based metadata wafts through space as it redefines contexts and places.
“Future Self’ studies human movement created by Random International.
The installation captures movement in light creating a three dimensional, ‘living’ sculpture from the composite gestures of those who surround it. Viewers are bound together –in the moment– as an ethereal, illuminated presence. Making its premier through performance, commissioned and supported by MADE, ‘Future Self’ has been extensively explored in a new contemporary dance piece choreographed by Wayne McGregor and scored by Max Richter in response to the installation.
Random International is a collaborative studio for experimental practice within contemporary art. Founded in 2005 by Hannes Koch and Florian Ortkrass, the studio now includes a larger team in London and Berlin. Questioning aspects of identity and autonomy in the post-digital age, Random International’s work invites active participation.
Special project for the 5th International Festival "Circle of Light" created by Sila Sveta
A remake of the classic Swan Lake ballet created in memory of the famous Russian ballet dancer Maya Plisetskaya on the facade of Bolshoi Theatre.
Leo Villareal's seeks to create his own sets of rules and central to his work is the element of chance. The artist's goal is to create a rich environment in which emergent behavior can occur without a preconceived outcome. He is an active participant in the process through the careful selection of compelling sequences.
These selections are then further refined and layered through simple operations such as addition, subtraction and multiplication. Parameters like opacity, speed and scale are also manipulated through the artist's custom software, creating compositions that are displayed in random order and for a random amount of time. Ultimately, the visual manifestation of code in light is at the core of Villareal's interest.
Infinity’ is an immersive environment project by Refik Anadol, a media artist and director originally from in Istanbul, Turkey. This project is an integral part of artist’s ongoing ‘Temporary Immersive Environment Experiments’ which is a research on audio/visual installations by using the state called immersion which is the state of consciousness where an immersant’s awareness of physical self is transformed by being surrounded in an engrossing environment; often artificial, creating a perception of presence in a non-physical world.
In this project ‘infinity’ chosen as a concept,a radical effort to deconstruct the framework of this illusory space and transgress the normal boundaries of the viewing experience to set out to transform the conventional flat cinema projection screen into a three dimensional kinetic and architectonic space of visualisation by using contemporary algorithms.
NONOTAK studio is the collaboration between the illustrator Noemi Schipfer and the architect musician Takami Nakamoto. Commissioned by the Architect Bigoni-Mortemard to create a mural in the lobby of a public housing building in Paris, NONOTAK was created in late 2011.
The simple geometric structure of the audiovisual installation Convergence is formed by LED light rods embedded in the industrial atmosphere of an eight-meter tunnel made from three storage containers. The continuous repetition of the “X” creates the staff of a choreography of light, as twenty-three blue Xes form a minimalist corridor of light that plays with depth perception. This X motif in its representation evoking a variety of associations such as the mathematical symbol for multiplication or the designation of a location on a map.
Miguel Chevalier's oeuvre is experimental and multidisciplinary. Taking references from the history of art and reformulating them using computer tools, his works investigate and explore recurrent themes such as nature and artifice, flows and networks, virtual cities and ornate designs. His images are a rich source of insights into ourselves and our relationship with the world.
"Pixels Wave” is a giant light carpet that will fill the floor inside the National Design Center.
Various “multicolored graphic scenes,” following one upon another in random fashion, are composed of such symbolic motifs from the digital universe as pixels, 0s and 1s (symbolic representations of binary code), mathematical symbols (+, x, and -), Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, etc.
Breathless Maiden Lane was created by Grimanesa Amoros, an interdisciplinary light sculpture artist with diverse interests in the fields of social history, scientific research and critical theory. She makes use of sculpture, video, and light to create works that illuminate our notions of personal identity and community.
This installation is a monumental light sculpture installation, is featured in New York City's Financial District. The intent of the piece is to conjure up excitement tantamount to the energy found in the city.
The sculpture's light sequence is designed to shift and change as the viewer walks around its architectural complexity. The concept of Breathless Maiden Lane is to provoke sensation of wonderment and awe, leaving them breathless.
Created by TeamLab in Japan, where people can walk into the water and the movement of the koi is influenced by the presence of people in the water and also other koi. When the fish collide with people they turn into flowers and scatter. The trajectory of the koi is determined by the presence of people and these trajectories trace lines on the surface of the water.
The work is rendered in real time by a computer program, it is neither a pre-recorded animation nor on loop. The interaction between the viewer and the installation causes continuous change in the artwork. Previous visual states can never be replicated, and will never reoccur.
The Pygmalion multimedia performance was created by Sila Sveta for the second round of America's Got Talent TV show and premiered on NBC Channel on July 29, 2016.
Leo's work is focused on stripping systems down to their essence to better understand the underlying structures and rules that govern how they work. He is interested in the lowest common denominators such as pixels or the zeros and ones in binary code.
