STUDIO ROOSEGAARDE CRYSTAL LEGO FROM MARS

CRYSTAL are hundreds of crystals of light which brighten when you touch them. People can play and share their stories of light.

Artist Daan Roosegaarde calls them “Lego from Mars”. The name refers not only to its futuristic design, but also to its endless potential to play. CRYSTAL has been previously exhibited in Amsterdam, Paris, Moscow and is now permanent in Eindhoven NL.

Each Crystal contains LEDs that are wirelessly charged via a magnetic floor. Once visitors start adding, moving or sharing Crystals, the basic breathing of the Crystals changes. The lighting behavior of crystals moves from ‘excited’ to ‘bored’, keeping visitors curious.

The coming years the Crystals will be open-sourced. This allows schools, high-tech companies and cultural organisations to develop new shapes and colours. CRYSTAL keeps on growing.

In a world shifting between the analog and the digital, Studio Roosegaarde is the social design lab of artist Daan Roosegaarde with his team of designers and engineers.
The studio creates interactive designs that explore the dynamic relation between people, technology and space. The studio develops its own technology and is internationally known for interactive projects such as Dune, Intimacy and Smart Highway.
Roosegaarde has been the focus of exhibitions at Tate Modern, National Museum in Tokyo, Victoria and Albert Museum and winner of numerous international innovation awards. Studio Roosegaarde also has a strong experience with public space commissions for the city of Rotterdam, Singapore, Eindhoven and Stockholm.
Studio Roosegaarde launched its second studio in Shanghai, CN.

700 тактильных «гибридных камней» Дана Розегарде — кристаллы специальной соли, сформировавшиеся естественным путем вокруг парных светодиодов. Подобно жемчужине, которую моллюск выращивает вокруг песчинки в раковине, кристаллы Розегарде покрывают техногенные объекты новым слоем естественной красоты.

El artista Daan Roosegaarde ha creado una instalación de luz interactiva llamada Crystal. Consta de 700 pequeñas rocas de sal y en su interior 2 LEDs y de una forma inalámbrica y por sensores, éstas rocas responden de manera diferente, dependiendo de la presión, de la manipulación de la gente y ésta información se transmite a una pieza de software que entonces altera el comportamiento de las luces.

La pieza se ha mostrado en PICNIC Museo EYE de Amsterdam y una versión permanente de la instalación la podremos ver a finales del 2013 en Strijp-S en Eindhoven, en los Países Bajos
