“Miara Pokoju” or “Quantum of Peace” is a kinetic installation by new media design group, panGenerator. On display at Poland’s Warsaw Rising Museum, the visually striking “infosculpture” uses thousands of bullet shells, pneumatic actuators, neodimium magnets, and industrial-grade transmission belts. The falling bullet casings form sets of numbers that relate to actual statistics from the 1944 Warsaw Uprising, an event which marked the city’s revolt against Nazis occupation and subsequent invasion by the Soviets. Watch the installation in action in the short video below!
