In our hectic lives centered around our urban living environments we often miss out on the complex beauty of the nature surrounding us. I think all of us need to take a chill pill sooner or later and one of the best ways to unwind is to get in touch with mother earth herself. In celebration of natural beauty, North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences commissioned “Patterned by Nature”, an exhibition that celebrates “our abstraction of nature’s infinite complexity into patterns through the scientific process, and through our perceptions. It brings to light the similarity of patterns in our universe, across all scales of space and time.”
The presentation made of 3600 tiles of LCD glass extends 10 feet wide and 90 feet in length and runs on approximately 75 watts which is actually less power than a laptop computer. The animations are created by independently varying the transparency of each piece of glass. (Sosolimited) Really impressive.
