When Goodby Silverstein & Partners’ BETA Group was asked to participate in the project, they wanted to showcase their creativity as creative developers, technologists and makers.
So they re-created Adobe’s logo as a physical installation with 100 handmade cubes, each one correlating to an artist using Adobe software in real time.
The cubes, handmade with acrylic windows and a wooden frame, each house 60 LED lights that function through a custom built embedded hardware system. This system provides data and energy to each cube. The data is then collected by agency-developed software installed in each artist’s computer. The software then tracks mouse activity and sends the pixel color of the artist’s current work back through the embedded system to each cube in real time.
The Adobe “Lights” installation will live at Adobe’s San Francisco headquarters, bringing together physical, digital and interactive elements into one living logo.
