Multimedia Sculpture

Living in large cities usually involves walking next to huge buildings on a regular basis; nonetheless, these buildings simply stand there as part of the city landscape – they don’t interact in any way with pedestrians. We saw Temperam as an opportunity to give life to one of these buildings and connect with the thousands of passersby.

Using heat sensors, these monumental sculptural columns can feel heat and cold the same way people do, allowing people to create an empathic connection with their everyday surroundings.
We designed a red-blue (red for heat and blue for cold) gradient that spans along the 16- meter height of the columns, coloring them accordingly to what people feel depending on the varying weather conditions.
