Los Angeles-based architecture firm Ozel Office produces a robotic sculpture that is both somewhat ominous in its exterior and incredibly captivating in its dynamics. 'Cypher' -- also referred to as a "cyberphysical sculptural installation," is an exploration of the relationship between technological advancements and contemporary architecture. Moreover, the robotic sculpture is an intersection of what is real and what is virtual -- a dichotomy that is losing its edge in recent years.
For its development, Ozel Office utilized smart sensors, scanners and VR technology. As a result, the dystopian-like robotic sculpture responds to human proximity with pulsating actions or it can be influenced by a person who is wearing a connected VR helmet. According to the firm, Cypher is the first installation to simultaneously harness physical sensors and VR technology.
