Point Cloud

Point Cloud

Point Cloud, by James Leng, is a sculptural form defined by a thin wire mesh that breathes weather data, driven asynchronously by 8 individual servos controlled via Arduino.

As whiteness of the hanging structure begins to disappear into the background, the viewer is treated to a constantly morphing swarm of black points dancing through midair. In the current prototype, the speed, smoothness, and direction of rotation are modulated to interpret a live feed of weather data.

Instead of displaying static values of temperature, humidity, or precipitation, Point Cloud performs the data, dynamically shifting between stability and turbulence, expansion and contraction.
