Spectra was an art installation, comprising of a moving, computer controlled surface, made up from 64 triangles suspended from thin wires. Each wire can go up and down independently, with a digital control that allowed the wires to move together to create a rolling surface. The surface represented the topology of a section of the moons surface, as travelled by the lunar rover.
We worked with Field from the outset of the installation to produce prototypes, before designing and fabricating both the mechanical structure and the electronic control that allow the movement. The project was created in a tight time frame and was exhibited at London Design Festival.
