Flow 5.0 by Daan Roosegaarde at 21c Museum Hotel (Bentonville, Arkansas)

Smart Wall FLOW 5.0 by Daan Roosegaarde from Studio Roosegaarde on Vimeo.

This interactive sculpture by Dutch artist and innovator Daan Roosegaarde is a smart wall composed of hundreds of ventilators that respond to visitors. As viewers approach, sensors located within the sculpture are activated as fans, blowing air onto passersby and into the surrounding space. By walking, speaking, and interacting with its surface, the viewer triggers the emergence of an illusive landscape created out of transparent fields and artificial winds. One of a series such works, this site-specific FLOW 5.0 heightens the visitor’s consciousness—of self, of space, of others, while actually becoming the connection between space and technology. In default mode, FLOW 5.0 creates a series of changing geometric patterns, and, sometimes, a letter may appear: A, E, or R.

Installations in Tom Bradley International Terminal at Los Angeles Airport (LAX)

LAX – Case Study from Moment Factory on Vimeo.

Moment Factory was commissioned by Los Angeles World Airports to work with Marcela Sardi of Sardi Design and Mike Rubin of MRA International as the executive multimedia content producer for seven iconic media features at the new Tom Bradley International Terminal at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). The result is the largest immersive multimedia system of any airport in the Americas. Moment Factory focused on the passenger experience, the iconography of Los Angeles, and the destinations served by the Tom Bradley International Terminal. Four hours of original video content were created, as well as multiple interactive capsules, using the latest in high-resolution imaging, 3D effects and interactivity based on people’s movements and real-time airport information.

Hershey’s 3D Chocolate Candy Printing Exhibit (Hershey, Pennsylvania)

After partnering with 3D Systems almost a year ago, Hershey has finally unveiled its first steps into the world of food 3D printing. Today, the confectioner debuted its 3-D Chocolate Candy Printing exhibit at Hershey’s Chocolate World Attraction, where visitors of the Hershey factory will be able to interact with their scientists and the chocolate printing technology.

Starting today, visitors at Hershey’s Chocolate World Attraction can see chocolate 3D printed in real time, along with finished products. They’ll also be able to browse the company’s library of 3D printable models on iPads and have themselves scanned to simulate themselves as 3D printed pieces of chocolate.

Swarm Street by Acconci Studio (Indianapolis, Indiana)

Located inside the Virginia Avenue garage, south of Maryland Street

Swarm Street on the Indianapolis Cultural Trail from Mike Knight on Vimeo.

“As you walk through the tunnel, as you cycle through, a swarm of fireflies – above you, below you – gathers around you & lights your way; one sparkle attracts another, like a magnet…” explains Vito Acconci, founder of Acconci Studio based in New York City. “When someone passes you, when someone comes toward you, some sparkles veer off in a different direction, and a new flock of fireflies emerges.”
