A light installation consisting of four concentric aluminium cubes, with the largest being 3 metres in length. Each cube is suspended inside the previous one.
The whole assembly is covered in over 120 metres of high density programmable LED strip. The Hypercube is programmed through the use of custom software and specialist hardware, allowing for the development of animated light sequences that accentuate the sides of the cubes and essentially operating as an abstract 3D volumetric display. These light movements are further enhanced through sound design.

Conceived as a commission for White Night 2014 by artist Kit Webster, Sensory Empire created the custom timeline software to drive the installation, developed the technology to allow basic 3D volumetric mapping and provided technical direction for the electronics and LED construction.
