When art meets science, innovation is born. This is well-portrayed in the project “Thermally speaking” designed by Leuwebb, an installation that translates body heat into a magnificent curtain of light and color.
Located in Toronto’s Fort York Visitor Center, “Thermally speaking” provides a glimpse into the future of body temperature readings, creative data visualization and also surveillance fields. A visitors’ body heat is revealed in three-dimensional space through experiential illumination. The public art project invited audiences to move through, over and around the ramp of the visitor center both as observers and subjects of observation, participants in dialogue with the phenomena around them.
At IBC Shell, we are constantly challenging ourselves by merging art and science into our packaging to elevate designs for our clients.
