Point Cloud

[video src=http://vimeo.com/42896836 align: right height: 220] James Leng’s Point Cloud redefines art by introducing weather as a form of artistic expression. The work’s sculptural form is “defined by a thin wire mesh, driven asynchronously by 8 individual servos controlled via Arduino. As whiteness of the hanging structure begins to disappear into the background, the viewer is treated to a constantly morphing swarm of black points dancing through midair.” Digital data is “transformed into a natural pattern of movement… ” The Point Cloud simulates changes in “stability and turbulence, expansion and contraction . . .[it] “creates a visceral experience in our interactions with weather.”
