Enter….”THE HYPER MATRIX”
WHAT IS IT?
Created for a Hyundai exhibit by media group Jonspasang, this amazing display manipulates hundreds of foam blocks to form spectacular patterns and imagery for the audience. The piston controlled blocks can push out or invert inwards as well as form a projection surface for a variety of effects. Check out the video to see it for yourself.
WHY IS IT RELEVANT?
In the same way that the China impressed the world with it’s human powered pixel block show at the opening ceremony. There’s something inherently beautiful and intriguing when space is manipulated artificially to create wave like patterns. Like a giant music visualization this display achieves an effect that you just don’t see every day. I love the idea of a permanent structure that changes based upon some input. The Daniel Rozen Wooden Mirror also comes to mind as does this waterfall manipulation showing Jeep branding.
