Vanishing Point employs perspective as both tool and visual outcome to reshape, redefine and represent a space. Inspired by sketches of Leon Battista Alberti, Leonardo DaVinci and Albrecht Dürer, UVA sends lines into space from an arbitrary vanishing point, creating different volumes, divisions and rooms to be explored by the audience.
Fluidic – Sculpture in Motion is a new installation for Hyundai’s Advanced Design Center installed for Milan Design Week and created by Berlin based design studio WHITEvoid.
The central core of the FLUIDIC installation the point cloud is composed of 12.000 small translucent spheres. These attached to almost invisible strings. The positions of the spheres in space are arranged seemingly random within the cloud. The algorithm takes into account the position by scanning the arrangement and projecting using 8 high power laser projectors positioned around the installation. Generating bright and dim light points, this creates a highly organic and natural distribution of voxels (3D pixels). Emerging lines and shapes finally form graphical compositions without any sweet or blind spots. Keeping the same density and intensity the FLUIDIC graphics enables their viewers to observe and interact with it from every point of view. Furthermore the installation comes with multiple 3D camera tracking systems that are able to analyze the presence of the visitors, their positions and posture. All joints of the human body are recognized and tracked by the systems constantly. This enables precise three-dimensional interactions with the graphics and elements of the cloud.
