2012_LIVING SCULPTURE_Philips_000-THUMB

LivingSculpture is created by WHITEvoid as a kinetic centerpiece for the PHILIPS trade fair stand at the Light + Building trade fair 2012 in Frankfurt. The installation is composed of 24 movable triangular aluminum frames carrying 864 ultrathin glass OLEDs (organic light emitting diodes) in total. 36 OLEDs are mounted on each frame and held in place by unobtrusive metal clamps that also transfer the power. This specifically-developed mechanism renders any traditional socket or direct cabling obsolete. Each triangular frame is then attached to three cable winch systems. 24 of these movable frames form the hexagonal arrangement of the installation with a diameter of six meters. Gradually evolving movement and luminance patterns that are controlled by computer accent the OLEDs specific mirror-and-light surface texture.
