Unnumbered Sparks is an interactive sculpture created by Google's creative director Aaron Koblin and artist Janet Echelman to mark TED's 30th annual conference in Vancouver. Members of the public can interact with the sculpture -- which hangs between a building and a walkway near the Vancouver Convention Center-- using their smarphones and tablets, controlling its ripples of color. As they pass the sculpture, they can connect to its Wi-Fi, open a web link, hold their phones up and select colors to draw with. On its blog, Google says that the project is actually a giant web browser: "The interactive lighting is actually one giant Chrome window, stretched across the 300-foot long sculpture with the help of five high-definition projectors."
