Luminous Origami Art Installation Displays Digital Information at Bremin University Library | Inhabitat

visualizing information

I LOVE information visualization! I’m always surprised by the different insights gained looking at a graph versus a pie chart showing the same information. So imagine the differences in 3D tangible paper!

To mark their 350th year anniversary, The University of the Arts in Bremen, Germany, created a luminous interior installation made entirely from folded paper. The sculptural paper panels float through the Library staircase´s from the street level to the fourth floor, and changing text and images are projected onto them to make the library’s information more readily available to students.
