When I attended the World Expo in Yeosu, South Korea, this summer, I was most impressed by one multimedia display exhibited in the atrium of the LG pavilion. It was a hovering ceiling made of over 50 near-edgeless flat-screen monitors. The height of each monitor was individually controlled by a computer.

Whitevoid has recently developed an installation of similar spirit to the LG display for Philips, called LivingSculpture. The showcase of Philips's OLED technology boasts many more "pixels," with a higher-resulting resolution. The more-detailed sculptural forms made possible by the LivingSculpture 3D system are due to each OLED unit's small size of 76mm square.

Unlike LG's moving display screen, the LivingSculpture 3D simply emits light at a consistent temperature of 3,000 K. But this simple focus on lighting provides users with new opportunities to measure the varying effects of illumination at different heights and intensities.
