Convergence

 

Convergence, 2016
Hot sculpted glass, steel, wire, 3D printed plastic, LEDs, weather sensor.
45' in width, 14' tall (from ceiling)
Location undisclosed online

Convergence draws from the building's environment and the advanced digital & technology development within. The optical glass elements light up in real time, mapping the wind, temperature, humidity, and dew point. Informed by both the surroundings of tangled vines and a major waterway, the sculpture flows from chaos to an ordered eddy of lines.

Each of the 700 pieces of hand made glass glass curves features an individually controlled LED on a custom circuit board assembly. A Raspberry Pi interfaces the weather station sensor array with the LED display with a Java application. An internet connection provides system monitoring and offers redundancy for weather data.
