The 14000 LEDs of The Eureka Room could easily be made into a futuristic onslaught of fast moving, jittery, twitchy lights. In my experience, a majority of tech-based/LED art stuff takes this route. And a lot of people enjoy it. (In fact, I’ve had a handful of disappointed visitors lament that they wanted to see it be more like this).
But I wanted to do something different. Something warmer and more human. Instead of using tech to make people feel like they’re in some Blade Runner-esque technological dystopian future where things are always anxiously glitchy, I want technology to bring people together and make them feel good.
