VITAL SIGNS, LIBERTY SCIENCE CENTER
In collaboration with: Batwin+Robin, Sawad Brooks/OPENWORK, Paul Yarin/BLACKDUST). Vital Signs is an interactive installation designed to disseminate breaking news about science to visitors in the museum. A continuous and permeable moebius strip of LEDs interspersed with projections would allow visitors to view streaming information from all sides of the atrium. A simple ladder-rung structure consists of an outer aluminum edge rail joined together by intermittent rungs. Plexi ribs supporting the LEDâ€™s and translucent plexi projection surfaces span between the edge rails. Visitors can dynamically select topics or upload information from various points along the mezanine handrails.
