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.
