Word Up – Electronic Light Sculpture

This reminds me of how we used to stand, mesmerized, in the huge atrium lobby of the then-new Hyatt Hotels in Atlanta and Nashville, simply watching the graceful, glass-bubble-pod elevators, as they 'floated' up and down in open space. Could those be an inspiration for this?

Check out the photo … makes me want to be there to see what they spell.

Minneapolis's new central library, designed by Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects and opening in late 2006, will include an electronic light sculpture provisionally named Word Up by multimedia artist Ben Rubin.

The project uses a matrix of LED tubes on the outer surfaces of each of two elevator cabs. — From the web site (plus links to design features.)
