Digital Matter

Nintendo meets Rococo . . . . In 2011, the High Museum of Art in Atlanta commissioned Joris Laarman Lab to develop an installation about the future of design. Inspired by research into programmable materials, Laarman and his team proposed a series of tables made of voxels, small cubes that represent volumetric pixels. The voxels can be assembled and reassembled by a robot arm following a digital blueprint. The series explores three-dimensional resolution using Nintendo’s Super Mario, a video game character, as a pixel-based analogy. As the voxel size used in each table decreases from 10 millimeters to 3 millimeters, the resolution of each Rococo-inspired table increases.
