A Kinetic Sculpture Revealing the Movements of An Invisible Flock of Birds

If you are looking a video that will completely soothe you after a stressful day, 'Diffusion Choir' is just the one you are looking for. It showcases a kinetic sculpture commissioned by Biomed Realty for its building at 650 East Kendall Street in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Sosolimited partnered with Plebian Design and Hypersonic to design, program, and fabricate this unique paper installation. The sculpture itself celebrates the organic beauty of collaboration by visualizing the movements of an invisible flock of birds. 400 folding elements comprised of Tyvek form a hanging volume in the sunlit atrium. Each element can independently open and close, controlled by custom software running a flocking algorithm.

Stereo.type by Ebon Heath
"This work (called Stereo.type) is a synthesis of our typographic language with the physical expression of our body language. These kinetic structures make the viewer listen with their eyes… or how can we make sound and its symbols found in language able to be heard visually. How can we unlock the sleeping meaning latent in a authors arrangement of letters and words to be free and as expressive as its content. When words come alive it will not be quiet. Some may yell or whisper, but they all are saying something." -- Ebon Heath
