The Seoul-based media art collective Jonpasang created a room with three walls of movable pixels that they call the Hyper-Matrix. Jonpasang’s project was exhibited at the Hyundai Motor Group Exhibition Pavilion at the 2012 Yeosu EXPO in Seoul, South Korea.
The Hyper-Matrix’s walls seem to move because each pixel, made of styrofoam blocks, is attached to step motors. The motors are then programmed to create hypnotic, psychedelic patterns. The effect is pure science fiction and is reminiscent of the movable rooms in Philip K. Dick’s novel “The Man Who Japed.”
Watch the Hyper-Matrix in action and the making-of video below. From the looks of the making-of video, the project took a fuck ton of engineering and construction.
