Precedent: Barnards Farm Sitooterie

The Barnards Farm Sitooterie is a small pavilion designed by Heatherwick Studio. Similar to Heatherwick's UK Pavilion, designed for the 2010 Shanghai World Expo, the Sitooterie is a cube "punctured by over 5000, 18mm square hollow aluminium staves that act as miniature windows with tiny glazed ends. [...] The aluminium staves are arranged radially, the origin point being the centre of the cube. A single light source located at this central point emits light at night through every tube, causing the windows to glow." The rest of the structure was "precision-machined, by an aerospace company, from 15mm anodised aluminium and bonded together using special high-strength adhesive."



The content is a display of the color of the light inside. I think the content does match the display because it's about creating an illusion of uniformity through low "resolution"; in this case, each aluminum stave could represent one pixel in a traditional display. This display is not meant to convey information, except that which represents the nature of the light inside. Additionally, at a distance the display completely merges with the physical exterior, just as at a distance a low-resolution display gains perceived clarity.

The Sitooterie is certainly reactive to its internal light source, and purely dynamic because as a system it is stateless. At any given time it represents exactly what is inside. It has mild interactivity since the internal light can be changed to achieve a desired external effect, but it's definitely not generative or pre-rendered.

  1. Abe - Beautiful piece. I was lucky enough to see the UK pavilion at the Shanghai world's fair. Do you know what this does in the daytime? Thank goodness they just played beautiful light out of this one as it could have been so easily ruined with RGB LED video...

    1. I am jealous and am sure the UK Pavilion was amazing. Judging from another photo I saw of the Sitooterie, during the daytime the staves are like skylights. This concept is a bit like macro fiber optics since there seems to be barely any loss of light from one end of a stave to the other, which is what I think makes such a vivid display possible with no special electronic effects.
