A Kinetic LED Sculpture That Creates the Perception of Human Form With Minimal Information Provided

In “Study for Fifteen Points“, the engineers of Random International creatively experimented with tiny robots equipped with LED lights to learn the threshold of information that the human brain needs to recognize the human form.

The initial sculpture from Random’s new body of work in progress, Study for Fifteen Points experiments with the minimal amount of information that is actually necessary for the animated form to be recognised as human; and the fundamental impact created by subtle changes within that information. When arranged and animated in order, the points of light represent the human anatomy. Instinctually, the brain is able to stitch the disparate points together and recognise them as one human form.
