Crossrail is proud to announce the appointment of artist Spencer Finch for Paddington station. His proposal, A Cloud Index, intends to create an index of clouds embedded within the glass of the centrepiece of the new station: the 120m long canopy.
The result will create both a picture of a the sky in the tradition of English landscape painting by artists such as Constable and Turner, but also a taxonomy of more than 25 different types of clouds. The image will interact with the environment, changing with the different light and weather conditions. On a clear day, the clouds on the glass will float in the blue sky and on cloudy days they will overlap and interact with the real clouds, casting soft, ever-changing shadows into the station."
Seems like it’s not hardwired, but is enforce through software (firmware)?
I remember when the One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) XO-1 was announced, one of the features was the camera being wired in series with the warning LED, so that it couldn’t be turned off.
A partnership between Ericsson, Mediatex, Opera, Samsung, Facebook, Nokia and Qualcomm. Not sure what to make of it.
