Back by popular demand (here’s to you, Kris Merc) – another fantastically designed game to start your weekend. I have more than one friend who is currently losing sleep playing Botanicula – an indie game developed by Czech studio Amanita Design.

Sosolimited: Patterned by Nature

The North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences commissioned Sosolimited, Plebian Design, and Hypersonic Design & Engineering to create Patterned by Nature, a 10 ft. wide by 90 ft. long sculptural ribbon that winds through a five story museum atrium and is made of 3600 tiles of LCD glass. Animations are created by independently varying the transparency of each piece of glass.

I love the use of LCDs with no backing to create a magical window, and the decision to use abstract patterns that invite the user to pinpoint their origins. The actual animations are just 20×180 pixels! The piece recalls the real-world pattern recognition sculptures of Ned Kahn and the low resolution art of Jim Campbell.
