The Hyper-Matrix 180 degree physical pixel landscape

As part of the Hyundai Motor Company’s exhibit at the 2012 Expo in Korea, the Jonpasang media arts group have created what can only be described as a fantasic physical form of a pixelated display. Three walls contain thousands of blocks that measure 300mm square – and each block can be individually controlled to slide in and out of its’ position.

In doing so, the creators can choreograph a wide variety of stunning visual effects. Furthermore images are also projected over the blocks to complete some visual effects. The following video contains the making-of documentary: http://vimeo.com/48285842.

And here is the landscape in action:
