Rafael Lozano-Hemmer - Flatsun (2011)

This interactive installation is a circular display that simulates the turbulence at the surface of the sun using mathematical equations. The piece reacts to the presence of the public by varying the speed and type of animation displayed. If no one is in front of the piece, the turbulence slows down and eventually turns off. As the built-in camera detects people, more solar flares are generated and the sun shows more activity.ย The piece consists of custom-made panels with 60,000 red and yellow LED lights.
