8-Bit birds


This new, giant installation in the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences Nature Research Centre weaves around the stairs and balconies of the five-storey atrium. The entire thing, by Plebian Design, Hypersonic Design & Engineering and Sosolimited, is made up of small squares of see-through LED lights that go opaque on command. The flock of birds – complete with sounds – flutter across the screens, each square using only one colour, making the picture a giant 8-bit image. As an aside, it was next to impossible to get a screen shot of the birds. When paused, the 8-bit birds look simply like squares on glass. The true magic lies in when they move across the screens.
