The basic unit is a layer of transparent nylon fibers used for fishing nets, six meters high, arranged at one-centimeter intervals, and 18 meters wide. These are combined to form three nine-layer semitransparent curtains and one 14-layer semitransparent curtain, arranged at ten-centimeter intervals.
‘The project engages visitors and references the idea of community through various means of reflection, group interactivity and high-tech playfulness,’ says artist and designer Ivan Toth Depeña. He created custom LED light boxes equipped with sensors and infrared cameras that capture images as people pass by. Internal software, developed by Focus Lighting, then abstracts the image in real time and plays the abstraction on the light boxes.
