Technology meets art

I got home from a long day at work today, and settled in to catch up with all my Facebook friends. One of those friends posted a link that I just had to share. This is a 7 minute video of an art display at the BMW museum in Munich. Here’s the link: http://www.stumbleupon.com/su/5XXGch/www.artcom.de/kinetik//r:f 

I am sharing this link with you now because I can think of no better example of technology meeting art. This display is created using 714 small metal spheres, each hanging from a thin metal wire, and each individually controlled (by a computer) with it’s own stepper-motor. The whole display covers six square meters, and is simply amazing to watch. I just had to share this video on this, the inaugural day of my new blog. Since I intend to talk about Technology here, and how Technology (yes, with a capital “T”) impacts all our lives (in both positive and negative ways) every single day.

This video is a perfect example of technology melding with art. In fact of the lines between technology and art becoming completely blurred. I think thats a good thing.
