Lamina is an interactive sculpture that blends elements of traditional sculpture with new media art. The sculpture appears as a set of 96 elliptical rings, arranged as a set of horizontal layers to form a volume that twists and swoops. The negative space between the rings creates a moire pattern that ebbs and flows, creating different optical illusions from all angles of the sculpture and encouraging viewers to walk around the sculpture.
As viewers move about the piece, it detects their locations via LIDAR sensors embedded in the base of the sculpture. This data is used to drive outward-facing LEDs embedded on the outside of each ring — vertical lines of light appear around the perimeter of the sculpture, forming a counterpoint to the horizontal layers. The vertical lines trace the contours of the sculpture, following viewers as they move around it.
