Located on the bank of an artificial pond at the exit of the metro station Osaki. The project deals with the “duality between liquid / solid, real / virtual and water ripples / light waves. Pedestrians walk over a 6 x 6 meters large LED plane, installed right on the edge of the water. The LEDs are covered with translucent glass diffusing their light. With their steps, the passers-by provoke virtual waves on the LED plane, computed in real-time. When these waves hit the edge of the pond, they are extended into the water as real ripples.
Just like ordinary concrete surfaces, it looks a tad dull and drag when dry … but put it in a place with condensation-producing heat, running water or natural rain and it reveals hidden decorative designs (that disappear again as it dries).
Designed by Russian door makers of Mauer Buro. This is Window, partition screen, privacy screen or projection surface. It is made by a liquid crystal polymer membrane that can be control by remote control. The glass could be opaque or see through.
