Daito Manabe + Motoi Ishibashi “particles” Art Installation
The Yamaguchi Center for Arts and Media in southern Japan is featuring a new “particles” art installtion by Daito Manabe and Motoi Ishibashi. To create the illumnated particles in three-dimensional space they crafted a rollercoster-like rail structure that carries hundreds of balls with build-in LEDs. As the balls travel down the rails they are programmed to blink at specific time intervals to create the floating shapes. Plus, visitors to the installation can control and manipulate the particles with a touch display.
