Jaw-Dropping Interactive Living Architecture (10 pics)




Philip Beesley is a multidisciplinary artist and architect who creates interactive installations of massive proportions, and his latest work titled Astrocyte is a fine example of this. Made from 300,000 components, the piece combines chemistry, artificial intelligence and accompanying soundscapes to form a large-scale futuristic creature that responds kinetically to the presence of an audience by fluttering glass vessel appendages or low murmurings from its miniature speakers. An amazing installation that asks the question: can architecture truly be alive?

Astrocyte was exhibited in Toronto’s EDIT Festival last October. More on his work here . Images © Philip Beesley and Alex Willms / PBAI via Colossal
