Binary Waves

Located on the waterfront of the Rhône river, 48 movable lit-up panels transcribe urban movements captured in the crowd to offer incredible games and glare of lights.Everything is based on the detection of flux: bystanders,cars, water ... transcribed in real time over 48 mobile billboards. Each signal picked up by sensors is transmitted from installation to installation, describing a comparable movement with a wave.
Unveiling a black reflective surface on one side and silver and mate on the other, the panels can revolve on their vertical axis; they create optical effects in black and white, like a bar code. At night, these reflexions are relayed by alternating red and white LED.


This is an artistic project designed by the LAB [au] - laboratory for architecture and urbanism, a collective of artists founded in
1997, based in Brussels, which examines how technology influence show the man apprehends the world.

I find that this piece is a fine illustration and for sure a delight to photo fans!
