‘Virtual Sunset,’ a globally connected live installation, explores the ephemeral notion of the sunset as an everlasting continuous global event and its equivalent in our ever expanding networked environment.

‘The Invisible Human,’ a collaboration between Tobias Klein and ordinary Ltd., takes the data imprint of a human body digitally “sectioned” through magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and turns it into a template on which crystals are interactively grown.

.
Contained within a supersaturated solution, the body section plates are given shape through an interactive crystallization process that echos those occurring in the body as it dies. As one phase turns into the next, the space continuously changes, oscillating between life and death.

INDUSTRY 21st Century Design Gallery is located in the Atlas Theater District at 1358 Florida Avenue NE
