SFMOMA: 3D Screen of LED Lights

San Francisco, the home of the Golden Gate Bridge, Pier 39 and some amazing art exhibits. The SFMOMA (San Francisco Museum of Modern Art) has one of the coolest exhibits ever. The exhibit "Exploded Views" is a seemingly random mess of flickering LED Lights at first glance. But heat out to the upstairs landing and suddenly these random lights will transform themselves into a 3D looking screen where human figures come to life!

Artist Jim Campbell recently unveiled his latest creation, which is composed of thousands of computer controlled LED Lights creating an atmosphere of humanistic shadows and fleeting figures.
