Exhibit Design Inspiration: Cloud

The art and design group Troika was commissioned to create this amazing flip-dot sculpture, called "Cloud", for Terminal 5 at Heathrow Airport in the UK.

The surface of the five meter long sculpture is covered with 4638 flip-dots, similar to those found in traffic signs and train stations.

As you can see from the video above, Troika uses a computer to control the flip-dots to create the patterns seen on the surface of the sculpture.

  1. This is awesome and it came just in time for me--I'm working on an exhibit where we want to show the collective power of individuals changing their behavior with regard to carbon emissions and have been discussing a "flipping" visual.

    Loosely relatedly, check out this video of an amazing dance company doing really innovative work blending digital display with physical movement.
