In collaboration with a team of researchers and architects directed by Peter Hasdell, Patrick H. Harrop and Sha Xin Wei, ESKI created the technological core of Pneus, a responsive pneumatic installation that has been in development since 2005.
Presented in Montreal from the 24th to the 28th of September 2008, Pneus took the form of a suspended forest that could interact with passers-by and the exterior light. The ‘trees’ were made of LED-embedded inflatable structures.
A new version of Pneus called Esea was presented from the 17th to the 22nd of October 2008 at an exhibition in Shanghai. For the Esea version, ESKI developed acquisition modules that integrated information collected by sensors that measured human proximity and light intensity.
