Installation artwork about words and their meanings – includes a physical object (displayed at the exhibit) and an app.
The object is a cube of LEDs that light up according to the geographical position of the participants online. Using the app, users could insert and remove words via a virtual version of the object, mapped to a “stone”.
The following images show the 3D visualisation of the object in the app interface, the object’s diagram and the LED cube at the exhibit.
