After Dark
Resolution: Mark Lottor's Cubatron (Clip)
Date: January 20, 2010
Running Time: 00:01:54

This After Dark event featured a special installation of the Cubatron by Bay Area artist and engineer Mark Lottor. A visually stunning favorite of music and art festival audiences, the Cubatron is a 3–D light sculpture made from 8–x–8-foot modular cubes, each containing 1,000 individually programmable RGB LEDs. Viewed from any direction—even underneath—the Cubatron’s thousands of programmed pixels paint exquisite arrays of color that cascade in spectacularly dynamic patterns.
After Dark is an evening series exclusively for adults that mixes cocktails, conversation, and playful, innovative science and art programs. Check out videos from these exciting events.
