The Creator’s Project: Liquid Crystals Transformed Into Interactive Canvas
A monochrome LCD display lets users create patterns with Kinect.
If you’re having a stressful day and you need something to soothe you, take a look at this video of Korean artists Hybe‘s latest piece, Iris. It’s a beautiful, serene screen that uses a standard technology that we’re all familiar with, the monochrome LCD display, and turns it into a matrix of wonder that interacts with the viewer.
The fluid, mesmerizing display works by phasing the opening and closing of circular black Liquid Crystals to allow light to pass through and create different patterns. It’s also hooked up to a Kinect so users can see their movements reflected in this rhythmic and tranquil canvas.
