My favourite rendition of The North Star Grassman And The Ravens: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PxYU7A6qCnc
I splurged on the LUMIA exhibition catalogue and it’s pretty fantastic. One disappointment of the exhibit is that they don’t have one of the installations popped open so you could give the innards of the mechanism a good look although realistically I can see why they wouldn’t want to do that. But the catalogue has some nice photos and schematics and all those spinning discs and bobbing and weaving levers and crystalline mirrors and lenses are gloriously H G Wells and steampunk!
I’d love to have a wall display playing some digital equivalent of those luminosities. I have one of Brian Eno’s random digital art creations but it’s very flat in comparison even if the effects are more varied.
