Janet Echelman’s “Skies Painted with Unnumbered Sparks”

The sculpture combined Wolverine-like strength, sophisticated technology and gorgeous execution, and was a massive technical challenge for Echelman and the team of more than 100 designers and engineers. Aaron Koblin, Creative Director of the Data Arts Team in Google’s Creative Lab, designed the public interface, which literally allows pedestrians to walk by and “paint the sky” with an open mobile browser.
