Perfect Fools’ latest interactive Converse installation features 480 individually powered Chuck Taylor All Stars, each acting as a pixel in a giant screen
The installation, Perfect Fools say, weighs 400 kg, is 5.5 m wide x 3.6 m high, comprises 20 modules and contains 480 motors. Each All Star shoe has its own servomotor ‘enabling 180° rotation, controlled by three synchronized servers’. The agency then invited musicians to play in front of the wall which responds to the sounds they generate.
The Canvas Experiment installation will appear at various locations in Paris and Berlin throughout this month.
