Daito Manabe and Motoi Ishibashi (of Face Visualizer fame) have unveiled a new project called Particles. Particles is a room-filling installation made of floating “light particles” that fly around and form glowing shapes. Visitors can choose a shape on a touchscreen panel and watch as hundreds of wirelessly controlled, glowing orbs create their selection in the air.
An openFrameworks application controls the luminescence, speed, and distribution of each LED
The installation is on view until May 5th at the Yamaguchi Center for Arts and Media in Yamaguchi, Japan.
