Aqueous – An interactive landscape of meandering pathways of light
Inspired by the symmetry in natural systems and composed of hundreds of interactive, stand-alone, modular platforms derived from the Golden Ratio.
Controlled from raw code that can process human interaction on each of the independent yet connected platforms.
In the day, Aqueous shifts in color and reflection to mirror the sky within a dichroic surface.
At night, Aqueous flows and glows in full illuminated interactivity.
