Liquid Crystal Canvas

Korean artist Hybe’s work plays out on a monochrome LCD screen, displaying a mesmerizing and serene two-minute video. “Iris” uses a grid of circular, black liquid crystals which open and close like the iris of eyes, phasing in patterns and scenes. A video of the work can be seen here, and in-person, viewers can interact with it via Kinect, fluidly moving the matrix as they move.
