Shanghai Spheres

World Expo, Shanghai, China

Using TAIT’s Navigator Control System, a grid of winched spheres was programmed with exquisite precision and limitless creativity.

We developed a kinetic sculpture, incorporating 1,008 150mm spheres, each suspended by a miniature winch. By moving the spheres to different heights at varying speeds, up to an impressive 3m per second, the installation became a creative canvas for the programmer.

The grid of spheres could be controlled with the utmost accuracy using our TAIT Navigator control system. We also provided show control for projection, light and sound.
