REAL-TIME DATA PAINTING
PRECIOUS NATURE is an evolving art form using real-time data. It morphs according to wind speed, wind direction, temperature and volumetric rain. The sparkling particles composing the map of Hong Kong are gracefully scattered away by the wind in an organic movement. The blue particles materialise the volumetric rain. This contextualised living artwork gives useful information about the weather to the audience.

PRECIOUS NATURE is a innovative digital artwork that presents our planet as a precious diamond that shimmers graciously. Our planet is composed of 100,000 glittery sparkles with gold and white shades that shimmer preciously.
