Made of locally sourced ash wood. Inspired by the Microsoft logo, the sculpture is also made up of 80 Ultra motion linear actuators, 160 custom milled wooden tiles and 10 micro-controllers. As if it was alive and breathing, Momentum moves when it senses human motion. TouchDesigner was used to control the entire experience for a seamless connection. The architectural facade is a blend of both traditional and new media technologies.
Custom LEDs light up, illuminating with the wave-like movement. When users interact with the sculpture, it feels as though Momentum is gracefully following your every move.
Form is 40-foot projection mapped wall showing imagery projected from three Barco RLM-W14 large venue projectors. Mounted with three Kinects, the wall captures peoples movement and transform it into spontaneous interactive art. Like a shadow the motion triggered art is projected in real-time onto the wall.
