The sculpture 'Crystal Aqua Trees' is controlled by a massive set of 44 LanBox-LCX controllers, allowing for a real-time control of many thousands of individually controllable dmx lights. LUFTZUG has developed the control system, a MAX6 application for interactively controlling the DMX lights and sound based on sensor values.
has created an illuminated sculpture entitled the 'Crystal Aqua Trees'
. It is installed at the SONY Square, the outdoor event space of the Japanese electronic company's Tokyo building.
The work was created as part the 'Ai no Izumi' (Fountain of Love) charity drive, which has been held by SONY every year since 1968. This year's sculpture is inspired by the Trevi Fountain in Rome, mimicking the fountain's sprays of water.
The interactive artwork responds to the movements of people using a sensor camera, causing the pillars of light illuminated by LED lights to change color, along with music playing in harmony to the vibrant spectacle.
In reference to the fountain concept, whenever coins are deposited in the crystal donation box placed in front of the square, the installation responds by switching to a special performance. Read more...
