“Particles” is a hybrid of kinetic and light art installations that creates unique patterns of three-dimensional floating and flickering dots. In a dark room, a sixteen-level, eight-shaped “toboggan-like” rail structure is set up. The structure is 7.5m high and 8m wide where 120 balls with built in LEDs roll down the spiral rails. Each ball also has a built-in connection which allows the LEDs to be activated remotely. As the balls roll down the rails, three-dimensional flickering patterns emerge as the individual balls blink on and off.
