ORB BlackBerry Installation

The rise of modern telecommunications around the globe has led to vast changes in our perception of time.

The Orb was created as part of the OCADU | BlackBerry Exhibit at the 2012 Interior Design Show in Toronto. Comprised of a large geodesic sphere onto which live data is projected, Blackberry users are represented as coloured dots that flicker as BBM messages are sent from user to user. As network activity flows around the globe, the Orb installation marks the passage of time. Our team manufactured the Orb in two weeks.

In collaboration with Sean Collins and Jacob Prapavessis.
