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.
