eFLOW: An Interactive, Color-Changing Sculpture

By Whitewall

June 19, 2015

Nikolaus Hafermass’s mysterious interactive sculpture debuted at Chicago’s Design Conference earlier this month. eFLOW uses the technology of E Ink Prism™, a color-changing architectural film that reacts to the movement and presence of people. The shape of the sculpture resembles a robotic geometric object but has organic looking twists and curves. The light from the sculpture swiftly moves throughout the piece and creates visual effects similar to on-screen computer graphics.

The collaboration between Hafermass and E Ink combines sculptural art and technology that can be found on a smart phone or an e-reader. The work is the world’s largest 3-dimensional application of E Ink Prism™ technology. The sculpture, massive in scale, can’t help but be enchanting, but it also uses very little energry, controlled simply from an iPad. “We’re in the second digital revolution. The first one glued us to our little and big screens, and the second one will liberate us from them and get us reconnected with the physical world in meaningful, beautiful ways,” said creator Hafermass.
