The electronic paper display developer E Ink created the electronic ink technology behind Amazon’s Kindle ebook readers. Now it is using that same technology to help create Dazzle, a giant public programmable art installation at the San Diego International Airport.
Inspired by a fool-the-eye camouflage technique dubbed 'dazzle painting' that altered the enemy's perception of WWI Allies' ships, artists Nik Hafermaas, Dan Goods and David Delgado are using custom-developed digital technology to create DAZZLE — a monumental public art installation along the 1200-foot long façade of San Diego's new airport rental car center. Thousands of autonomous one foot by two foot "pixels" will animate the installation.
E-paper technology is best known for its use in eReaders around the world. But a unique collaboration between artist Nik Hafermaas of Ueberall International and E Ink Corporation—makers of E Ink Prism™, the eco-friendly, high-fidelity alternative to LED that powers the Kindle reader—has resulted in the world’s largest three-dimensional application of e-paper technology.
Creative risk-taking in Media, Technology, and Space. When he’s not running the graphic design department at Art Center College of Design, Nik Hafermaas is creating new ways to combine digital interactive media, high-tech materials, and architecture through his studio Ueberall. He says there is no better place for innovation—and risk-taking—than XGD.
