I’m just back from a last minute visit to the From Spark to Pixel exhibition at the Martin-Gropius-Bau in Berlin. One of the best installations was Visp by Christian Partos.


5 wires, 10 m long with 1000 white LEDs, which all can be switched on and off individually. The 5 light-wires spin like big skipping-ropes, two revolutions per second. A computer, which also revolves, switches the LEDs on and off so that animated patterns are created on the revolving surface. Bitmap pictures, text etc. can be sent to the sculpture via radio link.
