I just went to the opening of Reactive Architecture and I am blown away. It really is beautiful …and intriguing…. and thought provoking… and fun!
The exhibition plays with notions of machines and buildings reacting to light and movement and environment.
There was a great moment in the opening blessing where notions of machine and organic, modern and traditional came together. A beautiful juxtaposition as the soft, sound of Tom’s taonga puoro, wooden Māori flute, was accompanied by the machine, robo-cop-hiss of one of the exhibits.
I am hoping we can get some video to put online soon, ‘cos the photos really don’t do justice to the sheer beauty as these machines move and shift in reaction to their human audiences – geek heaven!
