Pixelated LED Abstract Mirror

A new, public light-art installation just went up in Miami, Florida that uses infrared cameras to capture the moving images of commuters and translates that image into abstract, pixilated blocks of color and light. Columns filled with LED nodes are placed throughout the MetroRail hub of the Stephen Clark Government Center Lobby that encourage people to step right up and see their real-time reflection in the ethereal mirror. The permanently installed columns were commissioned by the Miami-Dade Art in Public Places initiative to encourage a sense of discovery in the visitors.

As a main stop in Miami's MetroRail system, the space serves as a hub for commuters. Artist Ivan Toth Depea wanted to incorporate the notion of daily circulation into his piece, so he used sensors and light to focus on the communal nature and circulatory qualities of the lobby. The project engages the building's visitors while referencing the idea of community through various means of reflection, group interactivity and high-tech playfulness.

Love it when art and technology come together to make interactive experiences like this.
