Aperture is a facade installation with interactive and narrative display modes.
Composed of single-aperture modules with receptor and actuator, Aperture acts like an autonomous skin. Capable of precise external control. Visual information is transmitted from the inside of the building to the outside. The surface permeability is regulated when the aperture’s opening diameters are changed.
Each single aperture and all the apertures as entity see what happens on the inside of the facade and react accordingly. Like the human eye‘s iris and the iris diaphragm of the object, they react to light, widening and contracting according to the intensity of incoming light. If no human activity is to be distinguished on the inside, a memory mode recalls images captured throughout the day and displays them.
