Brooklyn creative hardware prototyping agency BREAKFAST (previously) has created an an interactive kinetic flip-disc installation that reflects time and weather conditions at the Empire State Building in New York City using an AI script. This remarkable piece is also a mirror of sorts, reflecting the viewer’s image within the context of the larger picture.
The piece visualizes the current time-of-day and weather by animating clouds, rain, light/shadow, by rotating sections of discs to the reverse side. When one walks up to the piece, they will see their image reflected back at them, further embedding them to the connection between where they are and the current state in NYC.
