Capacitor installation by John Grade, Wisconsin

October 28th, 2013 by retail design blog

Capacitor explores an immediate and direct relationship with the natural world. This immense, 40- x 20- x 40-foot coil physically responds to information from weather sensors outside the Arts Center, slowly twisting and shifting to changes in wind direction and temperature. The giant, honeycomb-like structure is lit from within by light-emitting diodes that subtly change in brightness over the course of a day.
