HYPERJUMP Kinetic light sculpture

Kinetic light sculpture by Tundra collective. First Cadets Corps, St.Petersburg, Russia, December 2014 “Hyperjump” was created as a site-specific work for one of the halls of the former First Cadets Corps, which is now being reconstructed as a study spaces of Saint-Petersburg State University. The nineteenth-century hall has a sports ground with a basketball court , built here in a soviet time. “Hyperjump” explores the idea, set by this paradoxical combination: the basketball court, representing the physicality, we have from the nature, together with the architecture of the classicism period, the symbol of the human rationality. 25 moving head light beams on a truss stands and a powerful sound system were installed along the hall. While the light sculpture started to move, the electronic light devices came to life, turning into the actors themselves, bringing the light, shut in the strict geometry back, to its unpredictable nature.

MegaFaces: Kinetic Facade Shows Giant 3D ‘Selfies’. MegaFaces is a kinetic facade conceived by Asif Khan and engineered by iart. It can transform in three dimensions to recreate the faces of visitors to Khan’s pavilion, a 2,000 m2 cube situated in the Olympic Park in Sochi during the 2014 Olympic Games.

Beacon kinetic light installation

Chris O’Shea & Cinimod Studio - Beacon (2009)

Beacon is a kinetic light installation with a mind of its own. An array of emergency beacon lights interact with visitors, tracking their movement through the space, creating an immersive and playful experience. It is orchestrated in real-time by a bespoke control system, which uses tracking information from the cameras to coordinate interactive and highly responsive behavior.
