FLUIDIC - Sculpture in Motion
A seemingly floating point cloud above a water pond and consisting of 12,000 translucent spheres marks the heart of the installation. Due to a complex computer algorithm the spheres are arranged seemingly random within the cloud. At the same time the algorithm observes the positions and projection angles of eight high-speed laser projectors that are being arranged around the artwork. They are sending out beams scanning through the arrangement of the cloud. Generating bright and dim light points, this creates a highly organic and natural distribution of voxels (3D pixels).

Can a House be Hacked?
This weekend (April 27-28), New Habitat will be hosting a hackathon as part of the Ideas City Festival that will present architecture as an “API” to be hacked. The hackathon will mobilize a diverse group of architects, designers, artists, engineers, and technologists by providing the designs for a proposed building in New York City to be hacked away at, into and through to new ideas for domestic living.
To participate, hackers of all stripe can register on Eventbrite at new-habitat.eventbrite.com.

The Shape of Sound
The project  80 mesh - the shape of the sound  is created with the aim to investigate the concepts that belong to the language of the mosaic, aggregation and disaggregation, pattern repetition and modularity through the use of sound and its possibilities morphogenesis. The Shape of Sound

Remote Controlled Space Ball
Holiday gift guides are being overtaken by remote-control flying spheres (are our cities next?). The technology for computerized self stabilizing helicopters is so ubiquitous, that they are popping up on many wish lists. Perhaps the Tacocopter and Eco-Drone are not too far behind.

Form, Texture and Movement
A series of sculptures by Kohei Nawa represent the relationship between the human body, texture and implied movement. The artist used 3D modeling software to remap the surface of human forms. With each sculpture, Nawa reinvents a new way to see the body. Form, Texture and Movement
