A Sculpture with 430 Individually Programmed LED Lights.
EyeInTheSky was conceived as a special entry piece for ArsTechnica in Unterhaching near Munich. The event showcased a fascinating meld of art and technology through sculptures and interactive objects. The sculpture consists of a 1.86 diameter steel ring covered with dichroic acrylic glass and illuminated by 430 individually programmed LED lights. It generates the illusion of looking into an endless galaxy. As if, with a closer view, one could see through into another world. The sculpture is inspired by the idea to give insight into space, beyond the blue sky, where we discover fascinating new worlds brought to us by science and space telescopes.
