When I saw the two photohunter words I knew what technical work I would focus on.
Patterned by Nature is an exhibit in the Nature Research Center (part of the NC Museum of Natural Sciences). The exhibit celebrates our abstraction of nature’s infinite complexity into patterns through the scientific process, and through our perceptions. It brings to light the similarity of patterns in our universe, across all scales of space and time.
10 feet wide and 90 feet in length, this sculptural ribbon winds through the five story atrium of the museum and is made of 3600 tiles of LCD glass. It runs on roughly 75 watts, less power than a laptop computer. Animations are created by independently varying the transparency of each piece of glass.
An eight channel soundtrack accompanies the animations on the ribbon, giving visitors clues to the identity of the pixelated movements. In addition, two screens show high resolution imagery and text revealing the content on the ribbon at any moment.
The italic portions are taken directly from the NC Museum of Natural Sciences web site. The first three shots are of the work described but I also used some other shots at the end from the Nature Research Center that also focus on technical areas.
