It evolves in tandem with the environment itself. It parallels the complexity of ongoing natural phenomena.

 

 

Anodized titanium forms create a palette inspired by the sky.

Within this field of color, 60,000 points of light connected to a stream of Open Data Portals trace weather patterns in realtime.

 

Programmable LED lights connected to a stream of information from Oklahoma City Open Data Portals trace the city’s climate data. This data is analyzed and translated into patterns of light to create real-time shifts in movement and color that reflect upon the natural world.
