ATLANTApix: Voxels

Modern By Design at the High Museum of Art
"Modern By Design" at the High Museum of Art
Are we looking at a new design for an Atlanta skyscraper? Or perhaps the innards of a futuristic massive warehouse? Neither, actually. These tiny "voxels" (volumetric pixels) are collectively a table...crafted by a robot named Abby.

A current High Museum of Art exhibition (which I'll write more about in the not too distant future) features Abby, her current project, and the work of Joris Laarman, an artist set out to "add cultural meaning to technological progress" effort that I fully applaud.

The exhibition, Modern By Design, is running now through Sunday, August 21, 2011.

ATLANTApix and ATLANTAvidz of the tourATLANTA blog features a daily photo or video relative to Atlanta. Come back tomorrow for a new one!
