Overview

4480 Pixels in Space is a 900 square-foot, interactive light sculpture for the online survey company Survey Monkey's headquarters in San Mateo, CA.

Goals

The wall-mounted artwork illuminates the lobby with animated data-visualizations that read in live data from the company's servers, indicating the amount of survey activity around the world. Different data representations of the information create a variable pulsing light field.

Process

The process involved close collaboration between designers, fabricators, electrical engineers and data developers from both the artist side and the client side.
