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 LED’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.
