If you just happened to come across ‘The Particle’ without a little insight into its origin, you would probably think that the end of the world was near.

This otherworldly light installation is a kinetic sculpture created by Barcelona artist Alex Posada. ‘Particle 1.0’ is sensitive to its environment, altering its color and sound to accommodate its surroundings, thus creating unique 3D forms. Alex Posada made the sculpture with several rotating LED rings coupled with a synchronized sound system, creating an effect that is truly out of this world. The action starts at 1:50 in the video.
