|A large-scale hexagonal grid
of rotating units demonstrates a number of phenomena, such as pattern
formation, magnetic forces and the trajectories within a dynamical system.
Magnetic forces in each of the rotating arms cause a chain reaction of
movement affecting neighbour units and moving across the grid. Our physical
model gives participants the means of a direct and intuitive interaction
with a simple dynamic system, combined with an interesting aesthetic experience.
Participants are invited to interact with the sculpture by turning the
units, which produces movements along unpredictable lines. A projection
on the wall shows the spreading of the movement in realtime, through the
application of a motion detection filter a video feed that is taken of
the installation from above.
