Public Art

Like all of us, I'm sure you remember the amazing architecture from the Olympics in Beijing, China. Ever wonder about it still? Well, we've learned that designers have transformed the Water Cube into public art. We couldn't help but share this...

The exterior of the building shifts between beautiful gradients of color, but that's not all... Using custom software millions of Emoji are sifted through, and in combination with the I Ching, they inform the color, tone, and movement of the light.

Jennifer Wen Ma is the Visual Artist on the project. She calls it a "symphony of light". We have to agree.

She explains that this design project is a representation of nature and man and a symbol of society since the color and speed of light is in fact determined by the emotions of the people.

Lighting Designer Zheng Jianwei explains how light enters the bubbles then bounces off unpredictably within the structure. He continues to explain how this is similar to the I Ching philosophy... the sense that chaos, grandiosity and interconnectivity.

We are truly impressed with this project. It's beautiful architecture taken to a new level and turned into public art. Check out this video below to see both Ma and Jianwei eloquently describe this amazing design project.
