Shimmery Weave Installation: Janet Echelman and Aaron Koblin

Artist Janet Echelman and Google Creative Lab’s Creative Director Aaron Koblin have created Unnumbered Sparks, a monumental interactive sculpture, installed in Downtown Vancouver, Canada.The 745 feet net swings between buildings as it glows and shimmers, offering visitors an ultimate engaging experience. Using smartphones and tablets, visitors can paint vivid beams of light across the weave.

According to the Google experts, the weave resembles a web browser. Design Boom reports that ‘the lighting on the sculpture is actually a single fullscreen google chrome window over 10 million pixels in size.’

Unnumbered Sparks premiered at TED’s 30th anniversary and can only be viewed in Vancouver until 22nd March (which is today!). Then it will travel to other cities across the world.
