Vectorial Elevation – Relational Architecture #4
A few years old now but I’m researching how you can build space with light at the moment so I thought I’d put this up for posterity. Vectorial Elevation was an interactive artwork designed to transform the Zócalo square in Mexico City. Using a three dimensional interface this web site allowed you to design a light sculpture with 18 robotic searchlights located around the Plaza. A web page was made for each participant with photos from 3 webcams. The piece was unplugged on the 7th of January, 2000, after receiving hundreds of thousands of visits from 89 countries and all the regions of Mexico.
Unfortunately the website is also no longer online.
