Jelly Swarm

Jelly Swarm by Tangible Interaction
There is a really cool display up at the Vancouver Aquarium right now, designed by Tangible Interaction and origami artist Joseph Wu.

Inspired by the jellies found off the British Columbia coast, “Jelly Swarm” features 94 origami works each filled with an LED.  Visitors can excite the origami jellies into creating beautiful colour and light patterns from a touch screen controller. When left alone, the jellies interact with their closest neighbours, triggering random, generative displays of coloured light.

Artist Spotlight: Carson Davis Brown

“Mass” is a project by artist Carson Davis Brown in which he creates sculptures inside of big-box stores and other places of mass. He constructs the unauthorized installations, photographs them, and then leaves them to be discovered by shoppers and staff. Images of the installations are printed, framed (using un-sold frames), and exhibited inside the stores without permission. See more images from the series below as well as video clips documenting the building of installations using cameras tethered to in-store camera displays!
