Pupae Mesh by Glowing Bulbs
Pupae Mesh, a network of cooperating light objects created by the internationally-renowned artist collective Glowing Bulbs (established 1998, Budapest, Hungary) is inspired by the metamorphosis of a caterpillar. It features giant animated cocoons that communicate with each other and viewers through sensors and programming with integrated LEDs and speakers generating pulses, movement and dynamism.
Glowing Bulbs’ video mapping and panoramic projections, live VJ performances, videos and films have been exhibited at festivals, galleries and museums throughout Europe, North America and the Middle East.
