Editor’s perception: With the advent of the Internet age, people urgently need to release their own pressure and relax under the environment of increasing work pressure and complicated and indifferent interpersonal relationships. Traveling is indeed a good way. Therefore, consumers who pay attention to travel experience will be more picky, which brings challenges to practitioners. Therefore, the uniqueness of landscape and creativity has gradually become the mainstream pursued by practitioners, but sometimes it still cannot meet the needs, because attracting consumers is not the ultimate goal, making consumers feel fun and increasing the “return rate” is the practice. Those who need to pay attention.
Electronic Dream Canopy
The most famous “ultra-luxury LED canopy” that “looks up from the whole of Beijing” in Shimao Tianjie will bring a combination of sound and light full of fantasy and fashion to the entire commercial street, and become a world-class attraction that attracts crowds. spectacle. After it is completed, people can enjoy the colorful and pleasing day and night landscapes here, and feel the dreamy and fashionable sound and light art brought by modern technology. And tourists can send text messages to the platform number what they want to say, and it will be displayed on the sky screen.
Light is really a wonderful thing. When the light is there, we feel warm and the world becomes soft and beautiful; when the light is not there, everything becomes dim, even deep fear, making the world blurred and lonely. So modern industrial civilization makes the night bright, and those interesting people are using light to make the city more loving—for example, this “luminous seesaw” art installation from Montreal, the “city of festivals”. Seesaws were originally a symbol of eternal childlike innocence, and the creators added LED light strips to each seesaw, making it seem like a holy place for childlike innocence. And, to make things even more interesting, the seesaw also plays music, composed by Toronto-based composer Mitchell Akiyama. As you go up and down on the seesaw, the intensity of the seesaw light and the sound of the music will also change accordingly. (Landscape Bang) allows you to perceive the unique echo from your body rhythm, as if traveling back to the childhood.
“Sea” Liquid Shard
Spanning 15,000 square feet (approximately 1,400 square meters), the installation art “Liquid Shard” swayed in the wind on Pershing Square in downtown Los Angeles. Created by Patrick Shearn of Poetic Kinetics, this glittery piece, which looks like a galaxy falling into the sky, uses mylar and monofilament to create a shiny and reflective effect. Above Pershing Square in downtown Los Angeles, there is a silver ocean floating. This is an installation art composed of many silver fragments, swaying with the wind, attracting many viewers to take photos with the sea suspended in the air. The air-fluid sculptural installation spans 15,000 square feet across the plaza and the tall buildings beyond. The purpose of this work is not only to beautify the square, it is a combination of the beauty of technology and the beauty of nature, and it is also intended to bring a shade to the people who stay here.
Since 2012, many piano steps have appeared all over China. Piano steps guide pedestrians to use steps instead of elevators through sound, light and pressure transmission devices, promoting a healthy lifestyle. The interactive device of piano steps first appeared at the entrance and exit of a subway named Odenplan in Stockholm, Sweden. In Stockholm, the capital of Sweden, the entrance and exit stairs of a subway station were ingeniously “modified”, that is, each step of the stairs was painted with a paint brush. It has become black and white, just like the black and white keyboard of a piano. Don’t think that this is a prank made by someone out of fun, but that the staff of the Swedish branch of German Volkswagen made it on a whim to improve people’s behavior. Here comes the great trick. It’s part of the Theory of Fun initiative, which uses fun theories to transform people’s behavior. Andreas Dahlqvist, creative director from DDBStockholm, is leading the initiative. Piano steps are one of their most productive projects.
music light swing
The Light music swing created by the Canadian design team Daily Tous Les Jours, this design gives new life to the ordinary swing, and there will be music and LED lights while swinging. The interactive landscape does not increase the difficulty of operating the original simple facilities, and does not use complicated methods, but people feel different audio-visual enjoyment when using its original functions. The key to the interactive landscape is not only the interaction between people and facilities, but also the interaction and communication between people.
Swings are loved by adults and children, and Waterfall Swing creatively combines waterfalls and swings. There is a monitor on the top of the swing, which can capture information such as the characteristics and speed of the swinger, and calculate the timing of the water falling, creating a unique space without getting wet, which is very interesting. (Landscape State)
This landscape is actually a “dry landscape” installation, which is inspired by Japanese Zen gardens. The site is covered with a thin layer of gravel to create the artistic conception of dry landscape.
The relationship with 189 mirrors
Arrange two hundred identical small reflectors in a grid and hang them on the wall as a flat static whole. When people walk into the device, each small mirror will sense the position of the face and turn to face the face, track and capture the position of the face and move with him.
The 450 robot penguin, which can only rotate, perfectly presents the relationship between light and dark through its white belly and black back. When someone stands in front of you, the camera will shoot and control the penguin to rotate synchronously, showing you in a cute way.
This work is composed of 928 cute black and white fur balls. After sensing your shape, it will quickly respond with black and white matching. It is said that the on-site experience is quite weird.
Inside the triangular frame are several angle-adjustable sticks. Stand in front of the piece, find a correct dispatch, and start controlling the little sticks. Let them “wow” by your beauty.
Loop lighting installation
Each installation has a 2-meter-wide cylinder into which people can drive the machine. When two people are inside and pull the lever back and forth, the cylinder starts to spin. When the machine starts to spin, it lights up and 24 black and white drawings related to fairy tales move with it. Pulling the lever also activates the music, which produces a flash effect as the black-and-white image transitions, like a movie playing on its own. All elements of entertainment such as the speed at which the pictures move, the speed at which the music plays, and the flashing effects are determined by how fast the person pulls the lever.
“Swing Time” Ring LED Swing
swing time is an interactive ride consisting of 20 lighted circular swings. Available in three different sizes, this welded polypropylene swing allows visitors to exercise or play alone or in groups. This facility lights up this urban park. The built-in LED light source in the swing is controlled by a custom microcontroller, which can provide signals for lighting. That’s because an accelerometer inside measures how hard the swing is going. That is, when the swings are at rest, they emit a faint white light, which switches to a purple light when the swings are rocked. This reactive approach to use encourages interaction between people, creating a more harmonious community for the park.
Terry Plaza induction video playback device
ESI Design has completed a 1,700-square-foot motion-sensing video display device that changes with the movement of passing pedestrians in Terry Plaza in the center of Washington. The three display screens switch back and forth among the three themes of “Season”, “Color Game” and “City Scenery”, presenting a series of different pictures. When the screen is in the “Season” mode, the display screen plays the iconic cherry tree four seasons life cycle. In spring, when people walk past the screen, the cherry trees begin to bloom, and the flowers slowly wither as the pedestrians leave. When people stop in the lobby, butterflies dance on the screen. And when the screen is in the “Color Game” mode, the colored lines in the algorithm-generated mode spread all over the screen, like an interactive weaving tapestry, and echo with various activities in Terry Plaza. When the screen is in the “City Scenery” mode, the screen picture pays tribute to the city. When pedestrians pass by, pictures of city landmarks, statues and traffic scenes constantly appear on the screen. (Landscape State)
Floating Boat Koi Lotus Room
In the pond of the paradise, the virtual lotus is in full bloom, and the koi swims in it, full of vitality everywhere.
Affected by various real-time behaviors of people on site, the computer program depicts the scenery in the pond in real time.
Every inch of ripple on the water surface can be sensed, and the carp projected on the water surface can interact with the floating boat.
They have no consciousness, but they will change accordingly with the movement of the boat.
If the boat floats still, the fish will gather around the boat; if the boat shakes, they will evade.
The behavior of each fish will also affect the surrounding companions. It truly simulates the scene of fish playing in the water freely in reality, which is really interesting (Landscape State).
dance with mermaid
This work is similar to the previous one, with countless koi swimming in the wide water surface.
The river flows continuously, and people entering it can play and interact with the wandering koi.
Carps can not only perceive the existence of other companions, but also the existence of people in the water.
When someone approaches, they will react like real fish and evade one after another.
If it touches a person, the trajectory of avoiding swimming will change rapidly.
These trajectories are like flowers withering or splashing water, drawing countless interlaced and colorful lines on the water surface. You have to keep your eyes on the magnificent scene in front of you for a moment, because if you miss it, you will not be able to see the same second time.
The immersive and interactive installation, Transcending Boudaries, is on display at Pace Gallery in London from January 25 to March 11, 2017.
The creation comes from two inspirations: the first inspiration is the universe of water particles; the second inspiration is the floating flowers, and the fusion of the two gave birth to “Transcending Boudaries”.
The universe of water particles represents a flowing virtual waterfall, as if people are in the majestic canyon, blooming floating flowers, interacting with visitors in a moving way, as if people are in the sea of flowers blowing in the breeze, The elements of water and flowers give people a lively and real, immersive and intoxicating experience.
Forest of Resonant Lights
The interactive installation Resonant Light Forest is suspended indoors with thousands of LED lamps made of Murano glass.
They present a zigzag layout, densely and orderly fill the entire space, full of colorful installations, breathtaking.
These lights are equipped with sensors that respond to people’s actions and emit brilliant light.
This creative piece reminds me of my own existence as well as the existence of others.
When someone stands next to a lamp, the lamp will emit light, and at the same time it will become a starting point, spreading to the nearest lamp, and then causing a chain reaction of several rays of light.
Music interaction project Human Sound
One foot deep, one foot shallow, the ripples under the feet spread, accompanied by beautiful syllables. This is an interactive project called Human Sound, and everyone can be a creator of music. Changing the pace of the feet, the projection will change with people’s movements, spreading like sound waves. And the music will follow.
Quicksand interactive device that senses the human body
The current of sand is constantly advancing at a certain rhythm without interruption, and flowers are born, decayed, and born again one after another. When the viewer stands in front of the falling sand stream, the sand will sense the presence of the viewer and create a conflict, the sand stream will present a divided space, and the flowers on the opposite side of the sand stream will change according to the month.
Interactive art on the water
The water curtain film was produced in the late 1980s. With the innovation of technology, it has unparalleled optical effects. More and more are being used in large-scale activities. A foreign team has developed a magical water lighting device, which is special in that it is an interactive water lighting device.
The audience on the shore can control the effect at sea, and the effect presented at sea is related to the audience’s actions. Make it a show that really participates. It uses a motion capture camera to record the behavior and transmit it to the interactive device, realizing the interaction between people and the light show.
Han Lee Bulb Installation
Korean artist Han Lee uses more than 200 light bulbs suspended vertically to create a light bulb installation. In the case of alternating lights, it looks like sparkling raindrops. At the same time, it is also an interactive device. When the audience walks by, they can experience amazing moments. The lights are dazzling, more dazzling than the stars across the sky (Landscape).
Giant “kaleidoscope” interactive lighting art installation
help the tumbler to stand up
Children in need of rescue are drawn on a tumbler lying on the ground. As people put coins into it, the tumbler will slowly stand up, symbolizing that the lives of poor children have been improved. The tumbler does not fall down because of the heavy base. The designer reversed thinking and let the tumbler fall first and then stand up again. This process has aroused people’s active participation and expression of caring for children, which can be described as an exquisite idea. When you see children standing up slowly, do you also take the initiative to become generous to help them?
